Manchester City goal keeper Joe Hart is under a lot of scrutiny for his performance in this past week’s Championship League loss to Bayern Munich. He was responsible for two of Bayern’s three goals.
“I will decide (on Saturday) if he starts,” Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said, via ESPN FC. ”I don’t tell you now if Joe will play (on Saturday) because the players don’t know yet, but (on Saturday) I decide.
“Of course Joe knows he must improve the way he is playing but he has our trust.”
You’d think he’d start and bounce back this game, but who knows. They could bench him.
