Joe Hart discussed a number of different subjects and impressed during his first press conference as a Torino player.

Hart joined Torino on a season-long loan this summer, with his stock at Manchester City having fallen under new manager Pep Guardiola.

In his first press conference in Italy, the goalkeeper was asked about numerous subjects, including his former boss at City, as well as how he has settled in new surroundings.

“I’m studying Italian, I’m learning some important words to communicate with my team,” he said.

“Mistakes can happen,” the keeper added when asked about his error on debut against Atalanta. “In Bergamo I was fine, I made a mistake, but my team-mates and the public have received me very well and I want to keep them happy.

“The president and the coaching staff have made me feel at home right away. (Coach Sinisa) Mihajlovic and I have a good relationship. This new experience excites me very much and I want to improve every day.

“I grew up watching Serie A on TV on Sundays. I know there is also Juventus in town, but Torino are one of the best clubs in Italy. I am very happy, this will be a great season.”

Hart was then asked of his City future, to which he replied: “It’s part of my career and I want to take this opportunity. Right now I’m at Torino and I will work for Torino.”

And on Guardiola, he added: “Everyone has their own opinions. Now I’m focused on Torino.”
