Manchester City goalkeeper’s magnificent performance against Barcelona last night is one that would never be forgotten in a hurry. Infact, it is still a trending topic in sports circles.
Unarguably the man of the match, but for his decisive saves, Barcelona would have increased the scoreline and humiliated the English Champions. His 10 decisive saves are the most for any goalkeeper in a Champions League match this season. Unfortunately his heroics couldn’t see his team through as they crashed out of the Champions League last night.
Barcelona stars and coach, Messi, Iniesta took to the club’s website to hail his outstanding performance.
“He was phenomenal, he stopped everything. We have to congratulate him on a great game because he’s a fantastic goalkeeper.” Messi said.
Andres Iniesta added: “Hart was key to keeping them in it and was great in one-on-one situations. Outstanding.”
“The score could have been a rout. Hart was incredible but we weren’t really on towards the end. We had a lot of chances, which is not normal in this type of game. We deserved to win by a bigger goal difference.” Barcelona coach, Luis Enrique affirmed.
Former English player and sports broadcaster, GaryLineker opined that, “But for a truly astonishing display of goalkeeping from Joe Hart, our Premier League champions would be going home humiliated.”
