Jussi has no regrets over career
Jussi Jaaskelainen says he was once courted by Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and AC Milan but has no regrets about staying at Bolton.
Jaaskelainen moved to the Reebok Stadium in 1997 and established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, attracting interest from many top European clubs.
But despite having plenty of chances to leave the Trotters for a bigger challenge, he stayed true to the cause, a decision he says would not alter.
"I haven't regretted anything although Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and AC Milan all wanted to sign me," Jaaskelainen told Kepes Sport.
"My team is Bolton Wanderers in the good times and in the bad times too, I feel at home at this club."
Jaaskalainen has made over 500 appearances for the club but lost his starting role this season to Adam Bogdan, a youngster who he rates highly.
"I didn't fall apart but I wouldn't say I easily accepted it," he said. "Like every goalkeeper I'm only satisfied when the team sheet starts with my name.
"But it was in the air that sooner or later he would grab the chance if he got it. When I was injured he showed impressive performances. He deserved his place.
"Bogdan is a submissive, respectful and a very hard-working man, I like working with him."
