Cape Town - Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero believes Joe Hart will succeed at Torino because of his professional attitude, work ethic and ability.

Hart featured in just one match for the Citizens prior to his departure, with manager Pep Guardiola favouring former back-up Willy Caballero between the posts.

And Hart's first-team prospects were dimished further after the Citizens snapped up Barcelona stopper Claudio Bravo in a reported £17 million deal in the latter stages of the recently concluded transfer window.

Guardiola never favoured Hart, City's longest-serving player, largely because the Spanish coach did not believe he could be employed as a keeper who could start the club's passing out from the back.

Nonetheless, Caballero believes the England international has all all the tools needed to succeed in Italy.

He told Tuttosport website: "Hart is an absolute professional, total and complete. He has a dedication to his work that is uncommon - he's like a robot. He never holds back, not even for a second."

The 34-year-old added: "This is a player who knows how to make his presence felt. He has a strong personality on the pitch and is a real leader. He's world-class and has everything it takes to do well in Serie A."
