Hart wants to challenge for 1st

Hart was in the England squad that traveled to the World Cup in South Africa but did not play any games.

“I’m here early,” Hart said in the Daily Mirror. “They were asking me to come a little bit earlier, but I thought I needed a little bit more time.

“I wasn’t playing in South Africa, but it was still a long, old season with it being combined with what went before. But after a couple of weeks, I feel fine now.

“I just want to be playing all the time. That’s how I am. I enjoyed the World Cup. I got behind Jamo (David James) and Greenie (Robert Green) when they played and just tried to do my bit as best I could.

“I just enjoy playing, it’s what I love doing. I’ve been so keen to come back, kick balls, have fun and be involved in football again.”
