What with replacement Manchester City keeper Claudio Bravo having an absolute mare at Old Trafford on Saturday, Joe Hart would no doubt have been hoping for an error free debut for new club Torino this weekend, a genuine opportunity to show his detractors what the Premier League is missing out on.
Sadly things didn’t quite go to plan for the England stopper.
Firstly the Citizen loanee was referred to as ‘John Hart’ on the pre match team-sheet (John of course being his middle name).
Then, with his team 1-0 with 56 minutes played, Hart proceeded to drop this absolute guilt edge clanger to allow Atalanta’s Andrea Masiello an equiliser.

Indeed the Turin side would proceed to lose the game after Franck Kessie converted from the spot late on, another incident highlighted by Hart after he tried to put off the striker by walking behind the goal before the spot-kick was taken…mindgames.
