After being frozen out under new City manager Pep Guardiola, Hart decided to join Italian side Torino just before the transfer window closed last month, with his list of potential suitors limited.
Earlier today, we told you how the Torino officials had dropped a clanger themselves by spelling Hart’s name wrong on their team-sheets by referring to him as John instead of Joe.
And perhaps that put the England international off, because just five minutes into the second-half, with Torino leading, this happened:

To make matters worse, Atalanta won a penalty in the 82nd minute, and despite his usual antics, Hart couldn’t put off 19-year-old Franck Yannick Kessie:
A debut to forget for Charles Joseph John "Joe" Hart!

So, all in all, probably not the greatest debut in the world.
Right now he’s probably wondering how it all came to this.
