Chelsea move has not gone as planned - Begovic

Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has admitted that his move to Stamford Bridge hasn't gone as planned.

The Bosnian goalkeeper moved to the West London club in a £8million deal from Stoke City in the summer.

Begovic managed 20 appearances for the Blues while first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was recovering from injury in the first half of the season.

However, since the return of the Belgian, Begovic has been reduced to a bench role at the club which he admits is not ideal.

"[Moving to Chelsea] wasn't as simple as being number one or number two - I felt I needed a new challenge," Begovic told the London Evening Standard.

"Certain things were put in place, conversations sounded good to me and I wanted to be part of a great club and help the team win trophies."

"It hasn't gone as planned, but hopefully that will change and the future will look a bit brighter."
