The fall of goalkeeper Joe Hart is a harsh reminder that confidence is absolutely crucial for the performance of the man between the sticks. The former England number one has experienced an unbelievable fall from the top of domestic football to finding himself unattached in the summer of 2020.
After enduring a poor Euro 2016, Hart was dropped by then-new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, in favour of Chilean Claudio Bravo, who fit the Spaniard’s philosophy of a ball-playing goalkeeper. Since then, the ex-City man has experienced tough loan spells at Torino and West Ham United before joining Burnley in the summer of 2018 and playing second fiddle to both Tom Heaton and Nick Pope. Now, after just 24 appearances in two seasons, Hart finds himself without a club for the first time in his career.
Can the former England international and four-time winner of the Premier League Golden Glove find his form and resurrect his career at the age of 33? Let's take a look where he ends up next.
