The Manchester City goalkeeper has struggled for form this term, and the Three Lions squad have been poking fun at the 26-year-old over his recent gaffe-strewn performances

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart's mistakes in the Champions League against Bayern Munich have been mocked by his fellow England players, according to Phil Jagielka.

The 26-year-old was at fault for two of die Roten's goals at the Etihad Stadium as City slumped to a 3-1 defeat, and was also questioned for Romelu Lukaku's opener for Everton on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson has since backed Hart to return to form and insists he remains the Three Lions' undisputed No.1, but that has not stopped Jagielka and the rest of the squad from poking fun at the keeper.

Jagielka said: “You just throw it in, especially losing 10-9 at table tennis and I’m waiting for the next point, you just say, ‘Bayern Munich’ or something. Stuff like that.

“That’s just the kind of things you do. And obviously he comes back to me - and they [City] beat us 3-1 at the weekend, so I didn’t have a leg to stand on!

“Joe’s a great guy and a fantastic goalkeeper. And if he can take it like he has done, all the power to him. Joe’s someone who loves the banter more than anyone. It’s the same with me, If I’d made a mistake, the first person I’d be looking for is Joe to be straight on it.

“That’s the way you’ve got to take it. We all make mistakes. We’re all human and it’s about how far outside influences want to take it. That’s what makes it bad or not as bad.”
