The news broke this morning that Joe Hart had been told he would not be included in England’s World Cup squad for Russia.
As reported Gareth Southgate has decided to choose from Nick Pope, Jack Butland and Jordan Pickford in favour of the West Ham screamer.
According to a Hammers insider, Hart’s reaction to the news was a perfect example of his terrible season.
Our unofficial West Ham insider, Lee Satchell, lifted the lid on the moment the former City keeper was given the bad news.
While Hart had nipped off for a leak his phone could be heard ringing from the toilet.
“All we could hear was screaming from the gents at the Olympic Stadium, I heard Hart shouting ‘don’t listen to Pep! I’m brilliant with my feet and a great motivator’,” said Satchell.
“He continued shouting that he was a cultured footballer, he plays keeper like they do in Italy, is pretty much the next Gianluigi Buffon and it would be a huge mistake not to take him.”
However, what happened next typified Hart’s season between the sticks for the Hammers.
“While he was mid-rant we then heard a plop as Hart dropped his phone in the toilet and me and the other unofficial West Ham staff said that’s just like the way he’s been playing all season,” added Satchell.
“We all told him that with the way he has been dropping the ball all season he should never have taken his phone to the toilet. He didn’t find it that funny to be honest.
“At least it confirms that Hart has got butterfingers and England will be better off without him.”
