Torino President Sticks The Boot In As Joe Hart's Loan Spell Has Not Gone Well

A few weeks back we reported on how the Italian media were taking the piss out of Joe Hart his bad habit of coming out to claim a cross that he was never going to reach, but in the weeks since... It's only gotten worse.

After shipping five goals to Napoli for the second time this season on Sunday, Joe Hart has now been in goal for Torino's worst run without a clean sheet since 1950, and only one goalkeeper in Serie A has made more mistakes leading to goals.

It has not gone well, and Torino president Urbano Cairo has publicly expressed his surprise at how poor Hart has been, claiming that the club did not expect so many mistakes from an international goalkeeper.

Hart made a few mistakes, especially when coming out for the ball.

He is an important goalkeeper. We probably didn’t expect so many mistakes from an England international… but he did some good things, too.


Cario also said the following in April after a Hart error gifted a goal to relegation-threatened Crotone, as he believed that the speculation surrounding his future was leading to these mistakes.

There’s too much being said about Hart. His performance levels have dropped.

This is already the third time we concede a goal this way and that’s a bit too much. It happens and I like him, but come on…

It makes the rumours linking Joe Hart with Manchester United all the more insane. It's at a point now where if Jose Mourinho is truly going to replace David De Gea with the Englishman at Old Trafford, we're going to have to question whether or not he's actually a double-agent for Chelsea sent to destroy the club from the inside.

On BT Sport's European Football Show where they run a weekly update section called 'Hartbeat', they pulled no punches as to how bleak things have become.


There will no doubt be a number of teams in England who still wish to take Hart on, but after being shown the door at Manchester City, his attempt to showcase his skills on the continent has not worked out.
