Manchester City: Fans have mixed opinions on Joe Hart’s comments about Pep Guardiola - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans have been reacting to comments made by the club’s former goalkeeper Joe Hart about Pep Guardiola, with the remarks eliciting some polarised reactions.

The Burnley player spoke with Prince William for a programme which is due to air on BBC One tonight and cited being dropped by Guardiola in 2016 as one of the lowest points of his career.

Hart had been Manchester City’s first choice ‘keeper for six seasons before the arrival of the current manager four years ago, with Guardiola reportedly wanting a more composed goalkeeper in possession instead of the England international.

Was Joe Hart jettisoned by Pep Guardiola too quickly?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He duly signed Claudio Bravo, who had an 84.3% passing success rate from the previous season compared to Hart’s 52.6%. The Englishman played just once under Guardiola before embarking on loan spells at Torino and West Ham prior to being sold to Burnley in 2018.

The 33-year-old told BBC [via talkSPORT]: “Things happened with the new manager at Manchester City, probably the most important manager in the world. He didn’t even necessarily not like me, he just had a certain aspect which he didn’t feel I was up to, and it kind of dropped from there.” Those comments were later shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra.

Hart’s remarks about being jettisoned by Guardiola drew a mixed reaction from these City fans on Twitter, with some hailing his “class” while others were less impressed – one supporter called him “bitter” given Bravo’s far superior passing stats.

Here is a flavour of the reaction from Man City supporters:
