Football Focus: Joe Hart 'man enough' to accept criticism
Goalkeeper Joe Hart tells Football Focus that being dropped by Manchester City encouraged him to keep fighting "to be the best".
Hart, 26, found himself under pressure after a string of high-profile mistakes, most notably costing City a point against Chelsea in the Premier League, errors in the Champions League game against Bayern Munich and in England's victory over Scotland at Wembley in August.
As a result, City manager Manuel Pellegrini has selected Costel Pantilimon in goal in most League Cup fixtures and for some Premier League games.
However, Hart hopes to feature in the League Cup final against Sunderland at Wembley on Sunday.
Watch the full interview with Joe Hart on Saturday's Football Focus at 12:00 GMT on BBC One.
