What Must Joe Hart Be Thinking After Claudio Bravo Sent Off For Terrible Blunder?

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was shown the red card as Barcelona humiliated City 4-0 in the Champions League clash on Wednesday.

Bravo’s stupid move saw him receiving a red card which changed the whole dynamics of the game – with Barca punishing Guardiola’s side with back to back goals, thanks to Messi’s hat-trick and brilliant goal from Neymar.

And now England number one Joe Hart, who is on season-long loan after being exiled by new boss Guardiola would surely enjoy Braco’s costly blunder – which he would have never made.
