Butland praised Begović

The 20-year-old has hailed the skills of the Bosnian keeper, and knows he will have to be at his best to displace him as first-choice at the Britannia Stadium next season.

Stoke new-boy Jack Butland has revealed his admiration for team-mate Asmir Begović as he looks forward to his first full season with the Potters.

He told ESPN: “His shot-stopping, decision-making and presence have been solid all season. That is why there has been so much talk about him.

“I feel very lucky to be here and to have the chance to come in and train a couple of days a week. That’s helping me feel part of the team.
