Asmir Begovic: Sees his immediate future at Stoke

Despite Manchester United and Liverpool reportedly being interested in the Bosnian goalkeeper, he insists that his immediate future lies at the Britannia Stadium.

"I am happy to be here and I am happy to stay here. I am looking forward to reporting back in pre-season, meeting the new manager and staff and cracking on with the new season," he told the Stoke Sentinel.

"The most important thing is I am at a club where I am settled and I feel comfortable. Everyone has been really good to me and the chairman has been fantastic so I can't really complain."

And Begovic believes that he faces a tough challenge to keep his place in the Stoke side after the arrival of Jack Butland and the continued presence of Thomas Sorenson.

"Jack is a good up and coming keeper and everyone knows about Thomas and the qualities he has," he added.

"We have a strong group of goalkeepers and I am looking forward to being part of it."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
