Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says Torino have got themselves a “reliable goalkeeper” in Joe Hart but isn’t sure why the club let him leave.
Hart completed his move to Serie A on Deadline Day after new City boss Guardiola made it clear that the England stopper did not feature in his plans at the Etihad.
Mancini installed Hart as his No.1 in 2010 when the keeper ousted Shay Given, and the Italian coach believes Torinio’s new recruit will benefit from a spell in Serie A.
“I don’t know [why Hart was axed],” Mancini told La Stampa. “But each coach has his own ideas. He will have the chance to redeem himself at Torino.
“In spite of his age, he’s going to have the chance to grow further because our coaches here are very good. And then the experience is bound to help him do well.
“Torino president Urbano Cairo has definitely pulled off a great coup anyway. He’s signed himself a reliable goalkeeper.”
