Shilton: Hart not one of the world’s best

Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton has said that Manchester City’s Joe Hart is not yet one of the world’s best in his position, according to BBC Sport.

England’s most capped player believes that Hart is still too young but in time he will be able to reach the level of the elite goalkeepers currently playing.

The 26-year-old has currently won 39 caps for his international side and is expected to be England’s number one going into the World Cup this summer.

"I don't think he is quite at the top at the moment because he is still young and, as we have seen this season, he is prone to mistakes," said Shilton.

"But he has a lot of natural ability and I like his confidence."

Earlier in the season Hart lost his starting spot at club level due to a dip in form and spent weeks of the season on the bench.

Shilton has pointed to the fall-out from the City squad as the main reason why he believes Hart is not at the level of the best goalkeepers in the world.

"At the moment he has been making too many errors, especially when he eventually fell out of City's side during a crucial period," added Shilton.

"He still has a lot of improvement in him. When he has a couple of consistent years, you could start to say he is up there with the best in the world."
