Joe Hart has faced different battles during his career, from being at major tournaments with England and winning the Premier League with Manchester City to battling relegation out of Football League and playing non-league football.
Now, Hart faces a new challenge with West Ham United as they battle themselves out of the relegation zone.
I’ve been through everything in my career. I’ve played non-league, I’ve played for Shrewsbury Town and came into the team with eight games to go when we were one point above the relegation zone to go out of the Football League when I was 17 or 18-years-old,” he confirmed.
“I’ve played right at the top and won leagues and won cups, so I’ve had a great experience and, at the end of the day, it’s football and I’ll to keep the ball out of the net, whether I’m fighting for a title or fighting to stay in the league. That’s what I do and what I love.”
“I only care about how organised we are, how much of a performance we’re going to put in and how had we’re going to try to win three points and put us on the right line
“I don’t know how I feel about them, because they have an awful lot of talent like we have, but we’re in a situation where it’s a really big game and it’s really important for both clubs.
“I don’t really care about how they feel and I’m sure they don’t care about how I feel. I only care about how organised we are, how much of a performance we’re going to put in and how had we’re going to try to win three points and put us on the right line.”
“The manager’s primary focus has been to get us back into a good place. That’s no disrespect to Slaven [Bilic], because I really enjoyed the short time I worked with him and he is a good man, but I just felt there was an uncomfortable situation for everyone.
“So, the decision got made and David has come in and it’s quite a simple job in his eyes, and in our eyes, which is getting us playing as a team in a strong formation and making us accountable for mistakes and not being in position, and that’s how we’re playing at the moment.
“In my opinion, it’s good and strong and organised and I like the fact that people are held accountable. Every training session needs to be trained to the maximum and that’s going to help us as a team.
“It depends what you call ‘tough’. I call it ‘getting what’s expected from the players’. It might be perceived as being ‘tough’ but, in my opinion, asking people to train at 100 per cent and give more than they’re capable of on a matchday is not being tough, but asking people to do their job.”
