Adam Bogdan

Ádám Bogdán born 27 September 198) is a Hungarian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Liverpool and the Hungary national team.

Bogdán began his career in Hungary at Vasas before spending time on loan at Vecsés. In 2007, he moved to English club Bolton Wanderers, for whom he made 120 appearances across all competitions, before moving to Liverpool in 2015. Rarely used at Liverpool, he had a loan at Wigan Athletic in 2016, cut short by injury.

He made his senior international debut in 2011. Bogdán has since earned 20 caps and represented Hungary in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.

Liverpool

On 12 June 2015, it was confirmed that Bogdán would join Liverpool on a free transfer on 1 July, when his contract expired. He made his debut on 23 September, in a League Cup third round tie against Carlisle United at Anfield, and saved three penalties in the shootout, enabling his side to win the shootout 3–2. On 20 December, he made his Premier League debut for the Reds in a 3–0 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road, dropping a corner kick after three minutes to allow Nathan Aké to open the scoring. Bogdán also played in a much-changed Liverpool side away to Exeter City on 8 January 2016 in the third round of the FA Cup, conceding direct from Lee Holmes’ corner kick in a 2–2 draw.




On the last match of the 2015–16 Premier League season, Bogdán was named in the starting line up against West Brom after a long absence from the first team squad. West Brom opened the scoring through Salomón Rondón in the 13th minute, before Jordon Ibe leveled in the 23rd minute – the match ended in a 1–1 draw.

On 20 July 2016, Bogdán joined Wigan Athletic on loan for the 2016–17 season. Bogdán made 17 appearances for Wigan, keeping five clean sheets. In his final game, a 0–0 draw against Barnsley on 19 November, Bogdán suffered a tear in his ACL and was subsequently subbed off in the 59th minute. Bogdán then returned to his parent club Liverpool to do rehabilitation.
