Eng­land tak­ing Hart for granted

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

SLAVEN Bilic be­lieves English foot­ball is tak­ing Joe Hart (above) for granted.

The goal­keeper, Eng­land’s long-term first choice and on loan from Manch­ester City to West Ham, kept a clean sheet and was named Man of the Match in his most re­cent in­ter­na­tional ap­pear­ance against Slove­nia.

Re­cently, though, ob­servers have ques­tioned his value to West Ham and whether Jack But­land should re­place him with Eng­land, but Bilic said: “I think you don’t ap­pre­ci­ate him.

“You are ask­ing me be­cause you think you have a case. You are not ask­ing why we don’t ap­pre­ci­ate Harry Kane.

“I watched the game against Slove­nia and he was Man of the Match.

“Has he be­come an easy tar­get? Yes. The guy is bril­liant.

“He is a great pro­fes­sional and very in­ter­ested in the squad. He is a top pro.”
