Revealed: How Nigerian star is helping Joe Hart in Italy
Serie A By: Ayodeji Tunde | 21/10/2016
English goalkeeper, Joe Hart is getting all the support from his new teammates in Torino especially from Nigerian midfielder, Joe Obi who is at the moment helping out as a translator for the on-loan Manchester City stopper.
Hart was virtually forced out by Coach Pep Guardiola to bring in Claudio Bravo and that for many is not looking like a wise decision at least for now.
Obi who is acting as Hart’s translator while he learns Italian is happy with how the goalkeeper is already getting on.
He said: “Joe has quickly picked up basic Italian but he only talks about positives at Manchester City — nothing negative.
“He reflects on the great moments — winning titles, big games and derbies — and tells us funny stuff about his team-mates, leaving us in stitches.
“Some of our players try to wind him up by playing as City on PlayStation just to remind him it’s easier to score against him in a video game than in reality.”
At the moment, Hart, 29, has SIX clean sheets in ten games for club and country this term and has helped the Serie A side to a five-game unbeaten run.
