Joe Hart’s England career could be under threat and in that case, he will only have himself to blame. The 30-year-old made a much-hyped summer loan move to West Ham United in a bid to re-establish his authority beneath the crossbars but the move has kind of backfired for him.
The move was supposed to breathe life into his ailing career but it has turned out to be something very different. Hart’s position in the England squad was under threat and the player thought this move could bring him ample opportunity to so that Gareth Southgate could put his trust back to him.
Hart’s hammers career has been in jeopardy as David Moyes has preferred Adrian in the goal of late. Adrian grabbed this chance with both hands as he displayed brilliant reflexes for the East Londoners.
He was excellent against Manchester City and maintained his form as the Hammers inflicted a defeat to defending champions, Chelsea. Moyes is likely to go ahead with Spanish custodian against Arsenal too and Hart is set to sit in the dugouts for the third consecutive time.
Despite leaving Hart out of the starting lineup the former Manchester United manager made it pretty clear the current England number one is not going to leave the club anytime soon. If I am correct I don’t think his contract allows him to go back.
‘Joe for all his career has been No 1 wherever he has been and there is someone else who has worked alongside him. At this moment in time, Adrian is in goal, he played well against Man City and he did so again on Saturday against Chelsea.”
With World Cup scheduled to be held next year in Russia Hart needs to have more game time under his belt to impress Southgate. The likes of Everton keeper Jordan Pickford and Stoke City goalie Jack Butland are destined to push Hart to dethrone him from the No. 1 position so Hart has to move fast.
Hart leaked 32 goals for the Hammers which could have a great effect on the Hammers’ season. The London giants are currently in the process of getting out of the relegation zone and these goals could be very costly for them.
But regardless of the current situation Hart should sit tight and wait for his opportunity. the season is pretty long and there would be plenty of chances for Hart so he shouldn’t worry at all.
