Joe Hart explains what the Tottenham players have begun to realise this season
Joe Hart believes that the Tottenham Hotspur players are beginning to realise just how special their current squad could be, as reported by football.london.
Spurs added plenty of quality to Jose Mourinho’s options with six new players in Pierre-Emile Hojberg, Hart, Matt Doherty, Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius.
With half of the squad away on international duty this fortnight, Hart has been with the likes of Bale and Vinicius training at Hotspur Way and he believes you can feel how much the players realise what this group of players could achieve.
The former Manchester City and England goalkeeper, who has two Premier League titles to his name, certainly knows what it takes to win silverware.
“It’s a powerful squad, a squad that is starting to realise how special it could be,” Hart said to Spurs’ official website.
“It’s squad where it’s been proved already that everyone has a role to play, whatever that may be. If we’re going to be successful, we need to get our heads around that.”
Hart has already become a big voice in the changing room and out on the pitch in his two starts in the Europa League.
“I feel good. The guys have received me well,” said, the goalkeeper, who was capped 75 times by England.
“I like to think they understand me as a player and a person and what I’m trying to bring to the club.”
Spurs return to action on Sunday against West Ham United, one of Hart’s former clubs, and Mourinho’s men come off the back of that 6-1 victory at Manchester United.
“You can’t enjoy it too much,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s three points. Doing it before, that was what I was really keen to hit home about.
“It’s all very well getting one good victory in a season, but a 1-0 is just as good.
“It was nice to score the goals, but it is what it is, and it’s onto the next one against West Ham, that’s the next important game, then we’ll move on again from there. You enjoy it for that afternoon or evening, and then it’s done.”
