Hart loving Caballero challenge
Joe Hart is relishing his duel with Willy Caballero for the No. 1 spot at Manchester City - even though he does not enjoy being benched.
Manuel Pellegrini opted to start the Spaniard for City's English Premier League clash against Hull on Saturday, although Hart will reclaim his place in goal when City take on Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday.
While Hart admitted that he did not see any positives from being rested, he is happy to remain at the Etihad Stadium as long as he feels wanted by the club.
The England goalkeeper said: "It is hard for me to see (being rested as a positive). I am sure when I retire from football I will see them, but right now I am not going to see them.
"Of course I want to play every game, that is my nature, my professionalism. I am not the manager, just a player. I live by the decisions of the manager.
"We have always had good goalkeepers, David James, (Andreas) Isaksson, Kasper (Schmeichel), (Costel) Pantilimon, it has always been a fight for me to keep my place and that will continue, but I have always had high standards that I will keep to, whether there is one goalkeeper or 20. I love the challenge.
"While I am welcome here, I am more than happy to stay here and see where that takes me."
