Watch Joe Hart make blunder on Torino debut

Indeed, amid accusations of a lack of ability with the ball at his feet, the England global has been sent packing to Torino on a season-long loan - with his future at the Etihad Stadium seemingly bleak.

"Hart was an immediate opportunity", Petrachi told Sky Sports. Guardiola will keep an eye on Hart's progress but when the Catalan makes his mind up over a player, he usually sticks to it. Yaya Toure will attest to that.

Hart only ticks one.

Unfortunately, those remain the biggest weaknesses in Hart's game in spite of being regarded by peers and pundits as one of the best goalkeepers in world football.

At least, we think he makes his debut.

But if Hart's debut error wasn't quite as glaring as Bravo's - when City's Chilean new boy dropped a free-kick and allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score for Manchester United - then it wasn't far short.

"I have seen people say that Hart isn't good with his feet but that isn't true".

Reported in the Sun, City bosses will encourage offers for the out of favour goalkeeper by selling the England global at a "considerate" transfer fee in order to thank Hart for his years of successful service to the club. But he remains a top class keeper.

Still, it's hardly the most auspicious of starts to life in Serie A for old Johnny.

"It is more tactical and less physical here".

And unlike Bravo, Hart's clanger was costly as Torino blew a lead and suffered defeat in Bergamo. So really they should have put "Charles Hart" down.
