David Seaman hailed Joe Hart
Arsenal legend David Seaman believes that Manchester City star Joe Hart can be renowned as the world’s best goalkeeper.
The Citizens man has established himself as number one for club and country and Seaman believes that he can be compared to Gordon Banks and Peter Shilton.
“I think Joe’s already stepping in there by what he’s done so far,” Seaman said.
“The previous ones have done it season after season. But what he’s achieved already it’s fantastic.
“Joe’s got the chance of becoming the best in the world. If he keeps progressing like he is doing then it will be sooner rather than later.
“I can’t see any weaknesses at the moment. Goalkeepers will make mistakes and they will make big mistakes.
“What I look for is how they react. And every time questions have been asked, he’s replied with great performances in the next game.
“Mental strength for a goalkeeper is huge because once you make a mistake it can really cost your team, your country.
“I’ve experienced it myself and came back and won the league and won another title. It’s stuff like that; you’ve got to be really mentally strong.”
