The Bosnian shared a stage with the England World Cup winner yesterday.
The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer in the Stoke team ever since. However, there is absolutely no doubt that he has some way to go before filling the gloves of the greatest goalkeeper to play for the club.
Generally considered as the greatest English goalkeeper of all time he still holds legendary status at the club, and Begovic certainly is aware of that fact.
Something he highlighted today, after Tweeting the following photo and comment:
It was an absolute honour to be on the stage with Gordon Banks last night. A true legend! pic.twitter.com/oF5vus6ki4— Asmir Begovic (@asmir1) March 12, 2015
Stoke fans will certainly hope Begovic goes on to become as renowned at the club as the legendary Banks.
But fears are always present with the Bosnian regarding potential interest in his services from elsewhere, with Liverpool linked with his signature in December by The Daily Mail.
