Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that letting Joe Hart leave the club could make him live to regret the decision.
The England international is set to face his former side City with Burnley on Saturday. He joined Burnley on a permanent deal last summer, having spent two seasons out on loan at Torino and West Ham.
“I know how tough it was for the fans, for the people. He was an incredible keeper and had incredible results here in the club. That’s why it was not easy for me, to take a decision,” said Guardiola.
“I’m not always making decisions that are right. I have made in my career good decisions and very bad decisions, but you have to take it in the right moment and at the right time. Sometimes I took it and afterward I’ve regretted. That’s what it is. That happens,” he added.
The 31-year-old, who joined City in 2006 from Shrewsbury, made 348 appearances winning five major trophies, including two Premier League titles. He fell out of favor after the arrival of Guardiola as manager in 2016.
