Joe Hart ‘wouldn’t kick up a fuss’ if Man City midfielder decided to stay

It’s easy to say he’s a hard worker, but there’s so much more to him than that.”Hart’s words echo that of his manager, Manuel Pellegrini, who earlier in the week was full of praise for Milner’s versatility, calling him an “important and intelligent player.”And Hart could not agree more: “He’s a big part of our squad and brings a lot to the team,” he added.Joe Hart relies on the UK’s no.1 shampoo Head & Shoulders to feel prepared and confident for the game ahead.
