New Chelsea ‘keeper Begovic keen to challenge Thibaut Courtois for starting spot

first_img1 Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic New Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has no desire to play second fiddle to number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.The 28-year-old Bosnian joined the Blues from Stoke City on a four-year deal earlier this month following Petr Cech’s switch to Premier League rivals Arsenal.Begovic’s move has raised questions over his motives, with Belgium international Courtois firmly establishing himself as Chelsea’s first-choice glovesman in last season’s title triumph.However, Begovic, who had been Stoke’s No.1 for the past four seasons, is keen to press his claims with the Premier League champions this term.“I want to test myself against Thibaut, he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world but I believe in myself. I want to try and get as many games as I can,” he said in several national newspapers.“Hopefully every time I can show everybody what I’m all about and ultimately help this team. We all have to play our part and at a club like this I think you get to do so.“There have been no guarantees. The challenge that’s here, the manager and players was what attracted to me and that was a big part of my decision.“I’ll back myself, absolutely. I’ll be keeping my head down and working hard to see how I can help this team in the future.”Begovic, who ended a five-and-a-half-year association with Stoke, has already noticed the jump in quality on his arrival at Chelsea.“Even after the first week you can see the quality here and how they can improve you with the -levels and demands here,” he added.“It was difficult to leave Stoke after such a long time because of all the ties and relationships I had there. But this is definitely a step up.”last_img read more
