Joe Hart may not have had the smoothest of starts to his loan spell at Torino, with the England ‘keeper making a mess of a cross and gifting Atalanta a goal on his Italian debut.

However, on his belated official unveiling by Torino on Friday, the Manchester City loanee’s impressive attempts at speaking Italian prompted the journalists present to give the goalkeeper a warm round of applause.


Due to the whirlwind nature of Hart’s arrival in Turin, the club didn’t have time to properly unveil their high-profile new-signing until Friday.

However, the Shrewsbury-born star was quick to endear himself to the Italian press during the press conference, making a rather good fist (we think) at speaking the local lingo…

Hopefully, Hart can perform as well on the pitch for I Granata as he does in front of the media this season!
