Former Portsmouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has admitted he has no complaints at missing out on the chance to play in the FA Cup final after leaving the club for Stoke City during the January transfer window. The Bosnian opted to exit the beleaguered club for the Potters, but the south coast side have made a dramatic surge into this season's cup final where they will take on Chelsea. Although the youngster is pleased the struggling side are preparing for their big day on May 15, he believes he is in a better position now with the long-term in mind. Speaking to The Sentinel, he said: "It is good to see Portsmouth in the final, but there are no regrets for me whatsoever. "It was a move I could not turn down, because I was moving on to a lot better situation and a better club in many respects - a club on the up and with ambition. "You could say I could now be playing in an FA Cup final, but you never know that at the time you make a decision. It is nice for the club and the fans, a great achievement."
