Bolton's Klasnic ready to put sexual assault allegations behind him

Bolton Wanderers striker Ivan Klasnic said last season was clouded by sexual allegations against him.

The Croatian admits he was distracted by the accusation despite knowing he was innocent and he now hopes to put it all behind him and move on with his life, starting on the football pitch for the Trotters.

"I tried not to think too much about everything, but I was calm as I always knew that I'm innocent," he told 24sata.

"The hardest thing was that I had to say I'm sorry for everything but I wasn't even guilty! Luckily my family was by my side. They believed me, but I had to explain to them why me, why is this happening.

"I don't know what will happen in next season," he added. "But because of everything that happened to me, so many bad things, I just want to enjoy it."
