Pellegrini: Picking Hart wasn't straight forward

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini described his decision to stick with Joe Hart in goal for their 3-1 victory over Everton as "very difficult".

It wasn't a simple decision, it was a very difficult decision, but I think Joe needs the trust of all of us - of me, the other players and the fans.

Of course he feels he didn't do well the last game, he feels that he was guilty, but it was more important that today he reflected how strong his character is.
