Take Hart: Ex-England Man Makes Spurs Switch

Last updated : 22 August 2020 By Three Lions

Joe Hart has signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the 2020/21 season, the 33-year-old agreeing a two-year contract after leaving Burnley.

Capped 75 times by England, Hart has struggled for first-team football over the past 18 months but believes he can make Hugo Lloris work for his place in the Spurs' side.


Whatever the outcome of the move, a revealing interview with BBC Sport in June, as his Burnley deal came to an end, shone a light on how the ex-Manchester City man has coped with a dramatic change in his footballing circumstances.

"I remember who I am," said Hart.

"I remember playing for my local Sunday league team and trying to get into the Shrewsbury Town first team. I learned early - you need to keep things in perspective.

"You can have great things said about you in football, but you have to be strong on self-criticism, analyse what you are doing and be comfortable with it.

"Maybe from the outside, people are thinking it is a time for panic, but from the inside it is a time to look forward and see all the opportunities."
