Hart reveals message from Nuno. Former Manchester City and Tottenham goalkeeper. Joe Hart has revealed to The Daily Mail what Nuno Espirito Santo said to him during his playing career. With the Golden Spikes. Which spurred him to leave and eventually join Celtic, Hart moved from Spurs to join the Scottish Premiership giants in the summer.
The London Evening Standard reports that Celtic paid Spurs £1million for the former Blues goalkeeper. Hart joined Tottenham on a free transfer last summer. When Jose Mourinho was in charge of North London. The 34-year-old goalkeeper told the Daily Mail :“I want to be dedicated. I want to wear the badge appropriate for the team I represent . You’re not going to kick the ball for Tottenham” said Hart. “Yes, that’s what Nuno (Espirito Santo) wanted. I’ve never really spoken to him and one conversation. What we had together was that conversation.”
How likely is Hart to succeed at Celtic? Hart was a back-up for Hugo Lloris at Tottenham Hotspur last season. And it is unlikely that he will be number one anytime soon. If still there, the 34-year-old goalkeeper is an experienced goalkeeper. Who can do well at Celtic where he is first-choice.
Hart is in his mid-30s and is clearly past his peak. But he is good enough to perform well in Scotland. Celtic are aiming to win Scotland titles this season and will also play in the Europa League, and the former Burnley goalkeeper will play a key role in the squad’s mission. ‘Green-White Zebra’ this season.
