Joe Hart in a new chapter at Burnley after tough times in Man City

Joe Hart feels a weight was removed from his shoulders after leaving Man City for Burnley

It is turning midnight in Istanbul and Joe Hart limits towards the dugouts in the Basaksehir stadium. Either there is extra air pumped into their coaches or Hart is up high.

& # 39; I loved that! & # 39; he says with an involuntary smile, as if he had just finished his first night as a professional.

Hart has kept a clean sheet on Burnley's debut in difficult circumstances against an orderly team. A couple of good saves, a couple of decisive claims and a great result in the Europa League qualifier on Thursday.

It was not a spectacular performance by any side, one of which was not really necessary in a goalless draw, but Hart's behavior is different nonetheless.

His mood is different, even from the last time he spoke in public, three weeks ago in Chicago during the preseason with Manchester City.

There he was concentrated, possibly he had rehearsed his lines and he was not so liberal. Here, Hart, 31, seems released for the first time in a while. The shoulders have loosened.

So, here goes, a selection of your lines is damning. First, the loan periods in West Ham and Torino, and, by extension, his dismissal by the city's head, Pep Guardiola.

There is no reference to Guardiola or former West Ham manager David Moyes, but they have not strayed far from the line of Hart's eyes. Maybe the head of England, Gareth Southgate, too.

The treatment of Hart by Moyes is a particularly painful point and the goalkeeper blames him to some extent for being out of the World Cup in England in Russia.

"Politically, it's been pretty hard to believe in me recently," says Hart in his first interview since leaving City.

"I'm a big head to cut if you want to shake things up, I have a vast experience and I gained things, but it was a loan, which is what you expect from someone between 18 and 21 years old.

"It was hard for people to warm up to what they were doing, except inside the dressing room, nobody knew what it was about, wherever I have been, there is my heart and my soul.

"I've been here for a few years and I want to delve into it, I needed to cut ties with City and I felt like I was released, officially I've been in a club for 12 years, I'm excited to be in a new one, all my life is this club." .

Burnley wanted a loan contract when the idea of ​​joining Hart was debated for the first time shortly after Nick Pope dislocated his shoulder in Aberdeen late last month. Hart said, "No, it was a permanent change or nothing.

He was, according to the sources, willing to sit in the city for the last year of his contract if the correct movement did not take place.

Burnley ended up paying £ 3.5million and the former England No 1 will be at Turf Moor for at least three seasons, all is well. A little much needed stability.

After so much time borrowed, Hart wanted a permanent movement out of Etihad Stadium.

The loans hurt Hart, and what critics said about him also had an effect. Football can be a fragile world and Hart's open trust unquestionably took some hits.

"Outside of football, people lost a bit of respect for me," he says. "But I know inside that I still have it in me through hard work, dedication and quality."

Why has the respect been lost? I do not know. You are fighting and fighting a lost battle. I will continue to be me in good and bad times.

"I will continue to love football." That's something I'm most proud of: my hunger and desire for the game have not stopped. That's not easy, you know?

Hart mentions his first club, Shrewsbury Town. The game was simpler than a promising teenager. Maybe that's what you expect at Burnley, even considering the competition with Tom Heaton and the eventual return of Pope.

Heaton is ready for Sunday's trip to Southampton and Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists there is a battle for the shirt.

"The club really sold out, given the atmosphere and the way they do things," Hart adds. "It's me to the ground."

"It's the first club I've been to since Shrewsbury, where most (of players) are English, it's a very British team, even the foreign guys are British-foreigners.

& # 39; Regardless of nationality, they are all on the same page here. Everyone is pulling in the same direction. It seems easy to have, but it is not.

"I spoke with the other two goalkeepers, whoever plays will support us as we did when we were together in the national team."

Disagreeing with public opinion, Dyche believes veteran Hart has not yet reached his prime. The manager of Burnley has described this transfer as an "intelligent move" for all parties and there is also a certain degree of realism for Hart.

City is discussing the best way to pay tribute to Hart, the idea of ​​naming a training camp in his honor has been mentioned, but he is just waiting.

& # 39; Nothing has changed for me yet. I could easily find myself in the hierarchical order. I am fully aware of that, "he says.

"But I'm going to work very hard, play with a smile on my face and enjoy it."
