Everton recently brought in defender Muhamed Besic from Hungarian outfit Ferencvaros for a fee believed to be in the region of £ 4 million. Upon his arrival, Besic has claimed that he is ready to play in the Premier League. The Bosnia international was one of the standout players in the national teams World Cup campaign. Even though Bosnia failed to reach the knockout stages of the World Cup, Besic was one of the players who caught the eye with his impressive performances. He was exceptionally good in the match against Argentina.
After keeping both Angel di Maria and Lionel Messi quiet for most of the 90 minutes, Besic says that he can do the job over the course of a season in the Premier League. Much will be expected from Besic despite the player being just 20 years old. This is because of Everton’s fifth-place finish last season, while they could have even secure a top four spot had it not been for some indifferent performances towards the end of the campaign. After recently signing Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea on a permanent contract, there is a buzz around Everton going into the new campaign.
The player has signed a five-year contract with the Merseyside club and will be hoping to start on a regular basis straightaway.
“I must be honest, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be. You see always these good players (on TV) but it was my first time that I’d played against good teams. I think I did a good job. It was a great experience to play against Messi and Angel Di Maria but I think I did my job well. Was I nervous beforehand? No. Normally two or three hours before I am but in the game I was not nervous,” said Besic.
