England goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted that his form for Manchester City this season has not been brilliant.
Hart has been criticised for several key errors as Roberto Mancini's team have struggled at times in their attempt to retain the Premier League title they secured in such dramatic fashion ten months ago.
The former Shrewsbury Town shot-stopper accepts that he has not hit the heights he achieved last term, saying: "My season has not been brilliant. It's had its good times but it's football. It's what I love doing.
"Sometimes you take knocks, you take opinions, but you've got to be strong."
Meanwhile, Hart has welcomed Ben Foster's decision to return to the England set-up after opting out of international football for the last two-and-a-half-years.
The West Brom goalkeeper is in Roy Hodgson's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
Wayne Rooney is 1.90 to score two or more goals against San Marino while England are 21.00 to win the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and the hosts can be backed at 4.20 to triumph.
Hart said of Foster: "It's great to see Ben. He is a consistent performer, someone I get on well with.
"It's good to have keepers like that around. There are three top quality keepers here plus Jack Butland and John Ruddy, and everywhere you look there is good talent."
