Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that he does not see a problem with Joe Hart’s contract, despite agreeing fresh terms with a series of other key players in the squad, as reported by The Guardian.
The England international goalkeeper was dropped by Pellegrini at the weekend, in favour of summer signing Willy Caballero, and the Manchester club won their clash against Hull City 4-2 away from home.
Hart will, however, be restored to the starting line up for City’s key game with Roma in the Champions League tonight, although the Chilean boss denied there was any issue with his contract, despite the fact that it runs out in two years.
He said: “Me and Joe know what’s happening with that issue.
“I think it’s important we know how to manage it but it’s not the most important thing at this moment.”
The former Birmingham City loanee has established himself as a consistent first team player at the champions since Roberto Mancini’s second season in charge, although he did lose his place for a few games last season, with Costel Pantilimon taking the shirt.
Former Chelsea star Ashley Cole could line up against his old teammate Frank Lampard tonight.
