Joe Hart has called Slaven Bilic a “really good man” and backed him to bounce back after losing his job at West Ham, believing someone will give him another chance pretty soon.
In an interview with talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams, conducted after England’s 0-0 draw with Brazil, the goalkeeper was confident that Bilic would recover quickly following his time at the Hammers.
He said: “Slaven is a really good man.
“Football is football, there’s always another day, I’m sure Slaven will get another chance somewhere else. I’m at West Ham though so that’s where my focus is.”
The 30-year-old was between the sticks for the game against Brazil, after sitting out the friendly against Germany.
Hart has had a tough start to life at West Ham, since making the move from Manchester City in the summer.
In 11 appearances across all competitions, the goalkeeper has only managed to keep three clean sheets and has conceded 23 goals.
It has not just been tough for Hart at the Hammers with the team currently finding themselves 18th in the table, with the the joint second worst goal difference.
The poor form cost Bilic his job, and saw David Moyes appointed as his replacement on November 7.
The new boss is yet to take control of a game due to the international break, but will kick-start his campaign at the club against Watford on Sunday.
