Asmir Begovic

Begovic scored just after 13 seconds against Southampton. His 97.5 yards goal was misinterpreted by Artur Boruc. After the game Begovic explained why he didn’t celebrate the goal.

“It’s a cool feeling but it was a fortunate incident. I feel a bit bad for Boruc. It is a long ball that got caught in the wind and it took a wicked bounce. It’s not nice to be on the receiving end of those things as a goalkeeper. It does not make a goalkeeper look good and after it I did not want to celebrate out of respect for him.”
