Stevan Jovetic says he wants to heap further misery on his Manchester City team-mate Joe Hart when Montenegro take on England at Wembley on Friday night.

The Three Lions No1 has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks following a poor performance in a 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

While Jovetic, who joined City in the summer, rates the playmaker as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, he vowed do his utmost to fire Montenegro to victory.

“We have spoken a lot about the game and he said ‘Good luck’ when we left the stadium on Saturday – but I’m not sure he really meant it!” Jovetic is quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News.

“It was good for his confidence for him to play well against Everton.

“For me he is one of the top three goalkeepers in the world. I expect a very difficult game, but I believe we can win.”

Jovetic also lifted the lid on why the former Fiorentina star’s playing time has been limited since his big-money to The Etihad.

“It’s true I haven’t played much football,” added Jovetic.

“When I arrived I had a problem with my hamstring. The other players were already playing and I was doing the preparation.

“Then I went away with the national team and I came back with another little problem and the team were playing well. I played against Stoke and after
that I played against Wigan and I felt good.

“I didn’t play against Everton because I’ve had a problem for two days. I spoke with the manager and he didn’t want to risk me and felt it was better
that I didn’t play.

“I would like to have played more going into this game but I’ve had a couple of injuries and not been able to get a run in the team.

“Now I hope I’m going to stay fit and things will get better.”
