Asmir Begovic: My pre-match playlist

Music has had a proved effect on the psychology of sportspeople: some choose to get themselves whipped up into a frenzy with some thunderous rave or metal; others would rather walk out calm and collected, so go for something more mellow.

What’s flooding through Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic’s headphones? He’s probably not going to win any hipster points with his choices – but they work well for him when he’s on the bus, and that’s the main thing.

Alas, in the dressing room, however, Asmir is getting nowhere near the stereo, he tells us. Back away with that Nickelback, Begovic!
