Whoever fights is not dead, they say … Ask Joe Hart! The veteran goalkeeper has been presented as a reinforcement of Tottenham, with the endorsement of the demanding Jose Mourinho.
At 33, he arrives to take over from Hugo Lloris, if Paulo Gazzaniga gives him the option of being a substitute for Spurs. The DT, as always, wants internal competition in every position.
Hart was a Premier League champion with Manchester City but has not played in 18 months, as he did not have a chance as a substitute for Burnley.
Even so, it still has a lot of market and in fact Tottenham had to compete with Arsenal and Celtic for the signing of a man who remains physically at his best and shows a lot of desire to be a protagonist again.
« I’m here to help the team in any way I can, be it on the field, off the field, I’m here to try and push the Club forward. »

Recently, in an interview for the BBC, his battle cry was. « The fact that I’ve had to sit on the bench for 18 months in the Premier League is not going to define or crush me … I remember who I am. I remember playing for my local Sunday league team and trying to get into it. Shrewsbury Town first team. » Without a doubt, a great example for many who must queue …
One of the advantages that Tottenham, by Dávinson Sánchez, will have with this signing is that Hart does not complicate the 25-player squad as he is a local player.
