Dyche: Burnley keeper Hart can return to Man City with head held high

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says Joe Hart does not have a point to prove to Manchester City ahead of his return to the Etihad this weekend after 12 years with the club.

"He's very experienced now, he's played in enough big games," said Dyche.

"I think he will just want to get on with it. He's got no point to prove. I didn't bring him in to prove a point. In my opinion, he's another top class goalkeeper that we've got here.

"If he's got any point to prove, it would only be to himself - to continue to show what a top class goalie he is."

Dyche says he had no concerns about signing the 75-cap international, adding: "Sometimes you just fit at a club, sometimes you don't.

"When we signed him I didn't speak to him about all of that. I wasn't interested in that. I was speaking to him about getting back to being a top class goalie and how we could aid that."
