Hearts fans will appreciate some recent comments made by Tynecastle midfielder Sean Clare. The payer has admitted that he wasn’t at his best last season, and he takes full responsibility for that.

“I have to take responsibility for all of it. I wasn’t 100 per cent fit at times last year but it’s down to me to put in performances when I’m not fit” he said, as reported by the Evening News.

“Now I feel fitter, it’s up to me whether I play well or bad. I have to move forward and learn so there are no excuses.”

It is rare to see a footballer be so honest, and Hearts fans will appreciate Clare’s comments. There is now a reason for his struggles last season, he wasn’t fit enough.

Ankle operation could have affected form

That could have been because of an ankle operation he had last summer. Now that he is fit and raring to go, Hearts fans will perhaps see a different player next season.

They will get a chance to see Clare in action once again for the Jambos when they take on Dundee United in the Betfred Cup on Friday.

Clare did manage to score six goals for Hearts last season. This season you would imagine he will be looking to reach double figures. If he can stay fit he will have a real chance of reaching those figures.
