"I don't have a football club," Joe Hart told the BBC as he spoke confidently on his next move.
The Englishman has been released by Burnley after a two-year battle with compatriots Nick Pope and Tom Heaton. Now, at 33 years of age and four seasons after Pep Guardiola threw him out of Manchester City, the former England number one is officially a free agent on the search.
Truthfully, it has been one of the most dramatic downfalls ever witnessed in English football. For a man who was once considered amongst the very best in the world to now be sat without a club and wondering if anyone will invest in him is hard to believe.
Hart has two Premier League titles and holds a record four Golden Gloves, three of which were won consecutively - Petr Cech is the only man to ever match his four awards in Premier League history. As well as this, the former City star is England's joint second-most capped keeper of all-time as he sits with 75 caps alongside David Seaman, with Peter Shilton the only man ahead of them.
Today, however, Hart would be fortunate to crack the top 10 of best English shot-stoppers out there across the Premier League and the Championship. It really is a bewildering series of events how someone once put in the bracket with Manuel Neuer has ended up here within just a few years.
Here, we take a look at where next for the Englishman, with the MLS, Championship and even a Premier League return mentioned as potential destinations.
