Joe Hart had another difficult night in goal for Manchester City as European Champions Bayern Munich outclassed their hosts in a 3-1 away victory in the Champions League.
Joe Hart's week has not been a good one between the 3 goals Arsenal scored over the weekend and the two scored by Scotland in England's friendly win.
Joe Hart has told Manchester City's players they must show the character to bounce back and "massively improve" next season.
