Klopp rules out Liverpool move for Joe Hart, fans react

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out making a move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, and the fans have given mixed reactions.

The England number one is expected to be available at the end of the season after he was shipped out on loan to Torino.

City manager Pep Guardiola made it clear that Hart would not be his number one at the start of the 2016-17 campaign after he brought in Claudio Bravo from Barcelona.

It has not quite gone to plan, though, as numerous blunders have led to Bravo fighting Willy Caballero for the first-choice spot.

Hart is likely to be a regular name in the transfer gossip pages when the window reopens this summer, but his destination is uncertain.

From Klopp’s point of view, though, the 30-year-old will not be arriving at Anfield any time soon.

When probed in Thursday’s press conference about possibly adding to his group of goalkeepers, the German coach told reporters:

“Extra competition? You ask about goalkeepers but even though you don’t say the name, is it about Joe Hart? We don’t usually talk about these sort of things but in this particular case I think we can.

“He is a fantastic goalkeeper, the goalkeeper of the English national team, the highest quality, but we have highest-quality goalkeepers. It is not for us in this moment and hopefully not for us in the future – not because of Joe but we already have two strong goalkeepers.”

Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius currently occupy first and second in the goalkeeper ranks, and both have come under criticism this season.

Despite this, some fans do not think that Hart is the answer, while others are disappointed by Klopp’s admission.
