Ádám Bogdán (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈaːdaːm ˈboɡdaːn]; born 27 September 1987) is a Hungarian professional footballer who plays for English club Bolton Wanderers and the Hungary national team as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Budapest, Hungary, Bogdán started his career with Hungarian Nemzeti Bajnokság I (Division One) team Vasas Budapest.

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

He signed for Bolton Wanderers on a two-year contract on 1 August 2007.[3] His contract was extended in 2009 until June 2011.[4]

In September 2009, Bogdán joined League Two team Crewe Alexandra on a one-month loan,[5] making his debut on 29 September in a 3–2 home defeat to Bury.[6]

He made his debut on Bolton's 1–0 League Cup victory over Southampton on 24 August 2010.[7] On 29 August 2010, Bogdan made his Premier League debut when he replaced Jussi Jääskeläinen, who had been sent off for violent conduct, 37 minutes into the home game against Birmingham City,[8] and he made his first Premier League start in the away game at Arsenal on 11 September. Following Jääskeläinen's return, Bogdán returned to the bench but manager Owen Coyle gave Bogdán starts in both the League Cup and FA Cup.

On 31 March 2011, he signed an extension to his existing contract, which would keep him at the club until 2014.[9][10]

The 2011–12 season gave Bogdán more playing time after Jääskeläinen suffered an injury during an international break,[11] but in his first league game, on 2 October, he conceded five goals against Chelsea and Jääskeläinen returned for the next league game. Three months later on 4 January, after Jääskeläinen suffered another injury, he returned for a game at Everton where he was beaten by a 102-yard wind assisted clearance from his own penalty area by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard in a 2–1 victory at Goodison Park.[12]

On 14 January 2012, Bogdan saved Wayne Rooney's penalty at Old Trafford, although Bolton lost 3–0 to Manchester United.[13]

However, he performed well during Jääskeläinen's absence and when the Finn returned from injury, Bogdán kept his place for the home game against Arsenal on 1 February, in which he kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw. Despite Jääskeläinen's return to full fitness, Bogdán remained first choice goalkeeper.

On 11 March 2012 after Bolton's victory over QPR and on 1 April 2012 after Bolton's 3–2 victory over Wolverhampton Bogdan was selected for the team of the week by BBC Sport.[14][15]

On 14 May 2012, Bolton Wanderers held their annual end of season dinner on Sunday evening, with Adam Bogdan the recipient of the main accolade as he was named the club's Player of the Year, which is voted by the supporters.[16] Bogdan admitted he felt mixed emotions after getting the award[17] due to the draw against Stoke which resulted in Bolton's relegation from the Premier League.[18]

Bogdan signed a contract extension on 29 November 2012, which extended his contract to summer 2015.[19]
