Manchester City loanee Joe Hart was dropped for Adrian earlier in the season, but has recently regained his place in the West Ham side.
Joe Hart drew praise for the first time in a long while after his stunning performance against Chelsea, which saw the West Ham draw 1-1 at Stamford Bridge.
The Manchester City loanee endured a tough start to life in East London, and was dropped for Adrian back in December following a run of poor form.
Since then, on the few occasions he has played up until the Chelsea game, Hart has failed to convince West Ham manager David Moyes that he is the man for the number one shirt, and has done little to warrant a new deal next season. His performance on the weekend at Stamford Bridge, however, may have been a reminder to all that he can still cut it at the top level.
Despite a second season on loan under tough circumstances, Hart’s love for the game has not faltered one bit. The 30-year-old England man explained in an interview that he still continues to work hard in trying to improve, and loves the game as much as he ever had.
According to The Sun, Hart said: “I work hard, I’m dedicated and even when I’m not playing I’m the same guy. I play for my team, my family and my friends.
“I love playing football and I’ll keep playing football.”
On Sunday, Hart made an impressive five saves to keep West Ham in the game. Hart will have been both ecstatic with the result and his own individual performance. and added that he was proud to have helped earn his side a vital point.
