Milner backs Man City and England teammate Hart to recover best form
Wednesday 04 September 2013
James Milner has claimed that his Manchester City and England teammate Joe Hart has become a victim of his own success.
The midfielder told the Guardian: “Hart is a top ‘keeper and he knows being the number one for City and the national team means that you are there to be shot at.”
Milner’s comments have come after Hart found himself under increasing pressure following questionable performances for England, and then against Cardiff for the Blues. The goalkeeper though has retained the belief of Roy Hodgson, as he is in line to start in both of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.
The relative certainty of Hart’s position in the Three Lions starting line-up has come as a result of Ben Foster’s recent foot fracture. However Milner believes that Hart can use these couple of games to emphasise his importance to his country. “Joe has been through his ups and downs. The problem is when you play in his position and you make a mistake the ball can end up in the nets. But he a great player and we are lucky to have him.”
England trail Montenegro by two points in Group H and will be looking to get six points out of the next two games.
