England taking Hart for granted
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.”
