Joe Hart having the last laugh as Bravo & Caballero falter, says Seaman
David Seaman thinks it is clear that Joe Hart is better than
both Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero after England’s
number one goalkeeper was ditched in the summer.
Guardiola signed £15.4 million Bravo from Barcelona shortly
after arriving at the Etihad, with Hart moving out on loan to
Torino after being relegated in the pecking order.
But the Chilean has struggled in his first Premier League
season, forcing Caballero into action for the Citizens.
Seaman played 75 times for his country and 19 times for Man
City meaning that he has been watching the Man City
goalkeeping situation. He thinks that that Hart is having the
last laugh as he performs well in Serie A.
“I must say I’m having a little chuckle [at City’s goalkeeper
situation],” Seaman said when asked to comment at the London
Football Awards. “When you see what Joe’s capable of and what’s
going on there at the moment, it’s a shame. The decision was
made and that’s it.
“I’m glad that Joe is playing high-quality football and then
when he comes back with England, he still performs like we know
he can do. I know Joe is a good goalkeeper. I’ve always rated
him very highly – not just because of what he does on the
pitch, but because of the way he reacts to setbacks.
“He’s had a few and he didn’t have the best Euros, but he’s
reacted properly from it. He’s still performing and when you
look at the guys who are replacing him [at City], they’re
nowhere near as good.”
“Joe is winning anyway, because he’s still playing high-level
football. He’s still performing to great levels and then coming
back, playing for England and showing what he can do. For me,
his levels haven’t dropped.”
