Manchester City Roberto Mancini warns keeper Joe Hart mistakes will cost him his place

Manchester City Roberto Mancini has warned keeper Joe Hart that he is not afraid to drop him if his form wobbles. The 25-year-old has been described as the world's best after a string of impressive displays for club and country. But he has come under-fire recently with City leaking goals in the Premier League and Champions League, and also for England after an indifferent showing helped a Zlatan Ibrahimovic-inspired Sweden to a 4-2 win in midweek. Mancini said: "For me he is the first choice but if he does not play well I change. I don't have any problem. "Joe is like Mario Balotelli, like all the other players. For England I think it will be the same. If he does not play well maybe the manager can change the keeper. "Costel Pantilimon is a good keeper and if Joe does not play well for five or six games, probably I can change the keeper. This is normal. "But I trust totally in Joe, for me he is the best keeper in England. I am sure he can do some mistakes sometimes, this is a keeper's life. "If a keeper does a mistake, you concede a goal and you lose. If the striker doesn't score a goal the game can finish 0-0. "Ibrahimovic can score against every keeper. Ibrahimovic for me is one of the top five strikers in the world."
