Trotters striker bids to impress

Klasnic almost saw his career ended in 2007 when he was forced to

undergo a double kidney transplant. However, the Croatian has

battled back to fitness and he has impressed for Bolton in recent

weeks, including grabbing a brace in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with

Manchester City. “I like this league and am here to show my best

football,” Klasnic told The Sun. “After my health problem, nobody

expected me to be like this. “But I want to be like the other

players, not treated differently because I have this problem.”

Klasnic believes Bolton are unlucky to find themselves second from

bottom and that their next game against fellow strugglers West Ham

is a must-win encounter if they are to get out of trouble “Next

time against West Ham we must win,” added Klasnic. “If you saw the

games against Wolves and Manchester City you would not think we

should be 19th. “If you are unlucky, like we are, then these things

happen in football.”
