If Man City are to achieve any success this season, a large part of it will be down to their man between the sticks.
Since usurping Shay Given’s place as number one at City, Joe Hart has quickly grown into one of, if not the best, keepers in the country and the £600k that City spent take to take him off Shrewsbury’s hands is looking like brilliant business.
Speaking to Radio 5 Live, Sir Alex revealed he made somewhat of a faux pax in regards to Hart:
“I could have bought Joe Hart for £100,000 so we all make mistakes.
“I’ve no doubt [that Hart will be England goalkeeper for the next 10 years].
“If you look at the England goalkeeper situation for the last 20 years, I would think he’s easily the best.”
