Begovic’s odyssey began on the war-torn landscapes of Bosnia, where he witnessed the grim realities of the conflict from an early age. His father was forced to take the family to Germany when Begovic was four years old, and he eventually settled in Canada. Returning to Bosnia to represent his birthplace may have been a sentimental journey for Asmir Begovic, but it was in England that his heart and career found a deep and lasting connection.
From glorifying Portsmouth to winning the title with Chelsea, successful youe shared his thoughts on modern goalkeeping and the ever-changing soccer landscape.
It’s been a tough season for Queens Park Rangers, but the last four matches have yielded two wins and a draw. So what are the club’s goals for this year?
Yes, it has definitely been a difficult season. I think everyone can see the position we’re in. But I think our performance will be good when the season is over.
So, there’s more to come. We have everything we need to stay in the division first and foremost, and then we’ll see where it takes us.
What was it like going from playing on the bench at Everton to playing twice a week – as captain – in the It means a lot to me, and I take this responsibility very, very seriously indeed. So, as I said, there is still a long way to go. Personally, I really enjoy being there, being in the atmosphere again, playing in a top level league like the Championship.
The Championship is a tough league. At 36 years old as a league that requires a lot of moral and mental effort. It’s a marathon season, We’re very lucky. We have great facilities here. We have excellent medical staff and people who take care of us every day. But it takes a lot of discipline and dedication to look after yourself the best you can and make sure you’re ready for 46 games if you get picked. So I take this job seriously.I’ve done it throughout my career. It’s important. For me, as a goalie, the goalie group and goalie coaches are almost equally important because it’s a group of people you spend a lot of time with on a daily basis. And we’re very fortunate to have someone like Gavin Ward leading our goaltending department as a coach.We have a fantastic group. And when you’re in my position, you’ve got a family, a wife, kids and all the others to think about as well. So many different factors. And CRC this summer was a good fit for me in every way.
Goalkeeping has changed a lot over the years. Do you think it might not be enough to be a traditional goalkeeper in modern soccer?
I think the position has evolved a lot in recent years. We have a lot of strings attached to the forehand now. Maybe 10-20 years ago when I started we didn’t need it. So you’re constantly evolving. And I think that’s the nature of this world.
Different managers have different ways of playing and different requirements for a goalkeeper. And I think the more qualities you have, the better you can adapt to playing with different managers and obviously as the game develops. So it’s definitely a much more demanding job. Of course, it’s always a challenge to make sure that you’re keeping up with it all.
Since Working with people like José Mourinho has been an honor. With Conte, when we were able to win the Premier League. I even remember Harry Redknapp when I was very young and we were able to win the FA Cup, and the success we had at Stoke with Tony Pulis and Mark Hughes… So a lot of different managers, all of them. I’ve learned different things from each of them.They have all impacted my career in their own way and helped me achieve what I have achieved. And obviously they’ve given me a lot of trust. So it’s been a pleasureShare this link:FacebookXLiked this:Loading…Note NavigationPremier League: Liverpool and Arsenal a tasty start to the festive feast
