More to come says Asmir

More to come says Asmir

AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic believes there is much more to come from the Cherries this season.

The Cherries have made a disappointing start to the new Premier League campaign, losing their opening four matches, but the Sells endorsee says there is no need to press the panic buttons.

"The only way is up," says Begovic, who moved from Chelsea to the Vitality Stadium in June. "We can't feel sorry for ourselves; it's a long season and it's too early to write yourself off or anything like that.

"There is much more to come. It's about us collectively getting better, getting more energy at a higher tempo and just playing to the levels that we know this team is capable of. That's the main thing.

"It's not an individual sport, it's a team sport. We need to improve and help each other get better in every area of the game."

Bournemouth's travails are certainly a far cry from winning the Premier League with Chelsea last season for Begovic, but he was only too happy to move to the south coast.

"I'm really excited about the new challenge," says the Bosnia and Herzegovina international. "And I'm excited about the whole project the owners and the manager have going on here.

"It's not easy to leave a club like Chelsea but at this stage of my career, it's important to get as many games as I can.

"I'm looking forward to playing regularly again and being part of an ambitious and exciting project. The club want to move forward and I just felt it was the right thing to do at this stage of my career."
