Ahead of his first visit to Manchester City as a member of the opposition in over 12 years, Manchester City has honored their long time former goalkeeper Joe Hart. The club has dedicated a goalkeeper training pitch to the long time English international, and it comes complete with a beautiful artistic mosaic (see below).

Tomorrow will see Joe Hart, and the rest of his Burnley FC teammates take on City at The Etihad, and after the match club Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak will join Hart and his family to present him with his own replica mosaic and lifetime season card.

“It is truly fitting to mark Joe Hart ’s outstanding contribution to Manchester City in such a visible way,” says a statement from Al Mubarak.

“During his 12 years with the Club, Joe not only produced some incredible individual displays, but also celebrated great success as a member of the Club’s most decorated team in decades.

“His Manchester City legacy is assured and it is hoped that this tribute will serve to inspire future generations of goalkeepers who train at the City Football Academy dreaming of replicating his remarkable career.”

The statement from Joe Hart reads: “Having the goalkeeping pitch at the City Football Academy dedicated to me is a huge honor. Manchester City has been a huge part of my life and my career, and I’m immensely proud of what I and my teammates achieved in that period.
