Joe Hart was a very happy man on Saturday night, after his Torino side beat Cagliari 5-1 at home to move up into sixth in Serie A. On the downside for England’s number one keeper, it was his seventh game on the spin in which he had to fetch the ball from his own net, but luckily his teammates are giving him a serious dig out up top, and Torino have only lost one of those seven fixtures.
Two goals in the opening 10 minutes on Saturday put Torino firmly in control, but Joe Hart almost suffered a very embarrassing moment which could have changed the game 10 minutes before the break. It’s these kind of brainfarts which only go to vindicate Pep Guardiola’s decision to send Hart out on loan, despite Manchester City’s ongoing defensive woes.
Luckily for Hart the ball didn’t cross the line and two minutes later Torino made it 3-0 and essentially put the game to bed.
Obviously in celebratory mood the man with the least dandruff in modern football then took to social media to post what was possibly the most ‘WTF?’ video of the day.
Maybe the aroma of fine Italian leather or the unrelenting temptation of spaghetti carbonara is driving ol’ Joe a little mad, but either way it’s good to see he’s happy ahead of England’s crunch World Cup qualifier with Scotland next week.
