In a pre-match interview, Ben Foster slams Manchester United and claims Watford are “confident” in facing Cristiano Ronaldo and Co.
Ben Foster of Watford is unfazed by the prospect of facing Manchester United.
This afternoon, the Hornets face a Red Devils team that has recently suffered a string of humiliating defeats.
While Foster, 38, acknowledges that his former club has some outstanding players, he does not place them in the same league as Manchester City, Chelsea, or Liverpool.
When asked by Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves if United is suffering from a lack of confidence right now, Foster replied, “I really can’t speak for them.”
“From what I’ve heard in the media, and from what you’ve just said, that appears to be the general consensus.”
“To be perfectly honest with you, I’m not sure about that. I think when you’ve got quality players like Man United’s, you’re never far away from it just clicking and then they’re firing again.”
“For me, there are probably a couple of teams in this league that I’d be concerned about.”
“But the other 17, 18, including Manchester United, I honestly believe we can get points from.”
GET LIVERPOOL AT 301 OR ARSENAL AT 1001 IN THIS BETTING SPECIAL.
Between 2005 and 2010, Foster made 23 appearances for the Red Devils before moving to Birmingham City.
Rather than competing for titles, he is now focused on assisting Claudio Ranieri’s Hornets in their attempt to avoid relegation.
While United is in sixth place, five points behind the leaders, Watford is in 17th place, two points ahead of Burnley in 18th.
Foster began the season on the bench at Vicarage Road, with Daniel Bachmann preferring to play in goal.
However, in September, the Hornets’ veteran goalkeeper reclaimed his spot and has been in net ever since.
