Last season Ben Foster was the best custodian in the English Premier League and that is something marvelous when you consider that he was actually on loan from Manchester United to Watford who got relegated to the Championship at the end of the season in spite of his bravery.
But since then Boster has been troubled by the injury monster and actually has been out for 9 months with a cruciate knee ligament problem.
But he is reported to have recovered now although Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is not all inclined to rush the 24-year old. Foster is certainly not going to play this weekend and shall play against Middlesbrough a week today in a reserve fixture. After that of course, he shall be drafted into the first team.
Foster’s return from injury would be gleefully noted by England national coach Fabio Capello who is unsure whom to play between the sticks in the long run. Ben Foster certainly looks to be the pill that allays Capello’s goalkeeping headache.
