After Peter Cech eventually determined to leave, there seems to be a problem in Chelsea squad: being the perennial option is rather tough sell to any professional player in the game of football. The position comes with the concession that the first team formation are going to be really thin on the ground, which is clearly restricted to appearing in cup tournaments or as cover for any possible injury to one of the finest young goal keeper, ThibautCourtois.
The role requires a great amount of professionalism as well as the need to remain razor sharp just in case of an unexpected mishap, although weeks or even months could pass between appearances. If only goalkeepers are commonly regarded as different breed, then the No.2 goal keepers are in a realm of their own, way out of the main realm of those being on board as the No.1.it means that sourcing a fine No.2 is rather arduous as securing a world class reserve. The balance between ability, ambition, and maturity is tricky one to spark. The ideal candidate will be someone with hands-on experience of the tournament, the Premier League, yet one pleased to bide their moment on the side of substitutes’ bench. They also must be able to cope with the pressure of performing on a big state if they are summoned, just as the former reserve, Schwarzer, did well when drafter into the European Champions League semifinal against Atletico Madrid two seasons ago when Peter Cech accidentally dislocated his shoulder.
At the moment, there are two names consistently talked to be heading the list: Queens Park Rangers’ Robert Green and Stoke City’s AsmirBegovic, and they each have a very different criterion. At 28, AsmirBegovic is entering the ultimate phase of his goalkeeping odyssey, for instance Bayern Munich stopper Manuel Neuer is 29 years old, with another great decade of world class flight football to go through if he should remain his high standards and his fitness. Stoke’sAsmirBegovic is left handed and QPR Robert Green is right-handed. They are both being mooted as Cech’s replacements at the Blues.
Begovic was accustomed to being the No.2 at Stoke last season when he was excluded in preference of Jack Butland on several occasions and was far from being pleased at that situation. He surely has the quality to be Courtois’ back up even though how long he remains patient and retains constraints his personal ambition remains to be pored.
