Young goalkeeper Suan Besic has officially swapped Marseille for Angers after three years in Southern France. Formerly the man between the sticks for Marseille’s reserve team, it became clear that Besic would be looking for a change of scenery come the end of the season. After being linked to Espanyol and Amiens, Besic has chosen Angers as an ideal club to continue his development with.
Still just 20 years old, Besic has plenty of room to grow. His potential has been recognized by many, including his country, having been called up to the Bosnia and Herzegovina U21 team earlier this year. During his short stint with his nation’s youth group, Besic appeared as a substitute against Albania’s U21 side in an international friendly.
One quality that may ensure success for the young goalkeeper is his mental fortitude. In an interview with unolympique.com, his determination became clear. When discussing his move to Marseille, leaving Paris and his family behind, Besic said, “It was very hard, especially when you join a club that is 750 kilometers from your home, in an environment that you don’t know at all. But that’s a part of developing, you have to make sacrifices in order to achieve your objectives.”
A willingness to make necessary sacrifices and an ability to adapt to new surroundings will only aid Besic’s continuing development in Angers.
