Foster relieved at playing for Man United again

Manchester United’s Premier League match with Derby County on Saturday was a special occasion for 24-year old custodian Ben Foster who was gifted his Man United debut.

Foster was on loan to Watford last season and his string of impressive performances did earn him a recall to the Old Trafford unit but he has been unable to play due to a lenghty injury. But now that Foster has returned into footballing action, the England international is pretty much buoyant and optimistic about his future.

Foster heaves a sigh of relief:

I finally feel like a United player now! I’ve been here nearly three years and it’s good to finally get on the pitch for the first team in a competitive game.

I’m not one for nerves – I just take things in my stride and try not to think about things too much.

It’s a big thing to come back from injury and to be thrown straight into the first team, but I thoroughly enjoyed it – though it was a bit harder than I thought!

Foster is a quality player and he is certainly in United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s long term plans.
