Liam Bossin, goalkeeper for KV Oostende, has revealed that he once wished he didn’t have to play for Nottingham Forest because he was terrified by the crowd.
The goalie spoke with KW in Belgium on his career and the numerous places it has led him.
He’s had a varied career in football, beginning at White Star in Belgium before going on to Anderlecht’s U21s. He was in their first team squad by 2015, however he went on a free transfer to Nottingham Forest two years later.
He didn’t make a single appearance for Nottingham Forest during his tenure there, not in the first team or the youth ranks.
As a result, he was released on a free transfer in July 2019 and spent some time away from the game before joining Cork City and then FC Dordrecht.
He is presently playing for KV Oostende in the Belgian second division, which he enjoys far more than his stint at Nottingham Forest, which, by his own admission, was not a pleasant one.
“A large club. “Those guys have won the Champions League twice, which is more than Manchester City,” he explained.
“I was barely 21 years old, living alone in a big city, and had only played in the U21s.” I wasn’t physically prepared for the large task.
“I was on the bench once, during the Aston Villa derby.” I hoped I wouldn’t have to intervene. the audience, the atmosphere: terrifying.
“You simply felt the ground tremble beneath your feet.” Yes, it was a great experience, but it was also a terrible time.”
