Hart not fazed by media perception of City

Manchester City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart insists that his team are not a sideshow act, and that they are fully concentrated and ready to compete for the Premier League title.

With all the controversy surrounding Carlos Tevez, Kolo Toure’s drugs ban and Mario Balotelli’s antics, it is no wonder Hart is in the position having to justify Manchester City as a squad of players to be taken seriously.

Hart told the Daily Telegraph of how he welcomes the competitive nature of the squad and believes it is not necessarily detrimental.

We’re not a sideshow. We don’t need to go out in front of people shaking hands, proving we love each other. We don’t really care what anyone thinks of us on the outside. We just have to deal with it. There’s plenty of competition and plenty of love in the dressing for us to get through.
