Speaking during a quick-fire Q&A on popular video platform TikTok, the 38-year-old shot-stopper was asked a series of football-related questions.

When asked who has been the toughest player he has faced during his two-decade-long professional career, Foster named Costa.

Although currently without a club, Costa will undoubtedly be remembered best for the four years he spent in London.

While remembering Costa’s on-field exploits, Foster said: “It’s Diego Costa – because he was just a filthy little rat.

“He would just snarl and scratch and he wouldn’t leave you alone and he wouldn’t give you a seconds breath.”
