The latest Queens Park Rangers transfer news, views and rumours.
Green says he simply kept pushing and bore no grudges against the Brazilian, with his patience being rewarded long term as he is now the R's first choice once again.
“I think it’s difficult for keepers to move on: you only need one, maybe two, tops at most clubs. For example, Asmir Begovic has been touted to leave [Stoke City] for as long as I can remember," the shot stopper is quoted as saying by GetWestLondon.
“It’s not the same as needing three top class strikers and maybe even more.”
Begovic has been at Stoke since 2010, although he has been linked over and over with the likes of Liverpool and even Real Madrid.
The 22-year-old has made one substitute appearance for the West London side and has previously undergone loan spells at Yeovil Town, Preston, Stevenage and Carlisle United.
