Manchester City legendary goalkeeper Joe Corrigan passed along some helpful advice for City goalkeeper Joe Hart today, advising him that his rolled-up sleeves may have been the reason why Hart slipped in goal against Southampton on Saturday.
According to Corrigan, the rolled-up sleeves would cause his arms to slip across the grass.
“It was a bad mistake, and while I am not putting that plainly down to the fact he rolled his sleeves up, I am just saying you need all the help you can get when you play in goal,” said Corrigan on BBC Radio 5 Live. “You wear latex rubber gloves on your hands but you still have this skin area which the ball can slip through.”
