Foster Set For Spell On Sidelines

Foster Set For Spell On Sidelines

Ben Foster is set to miss a large chunk of next season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper is viewed as the long-term successor of Edwin van der Sar; indeed, reports suggested he would United's number one next season.

However, it seems that fate's dealt a cruel hand to the England shot-stopper: he's been having trouble with his knee throughout his loan spell at Watford and he's undergone surgery a few days ago.

His knee has been cleaned out but it remains to be seen whether his ligament damage is severe enough to require another operation.

'Ben has had some trouble fully extending his knee and it's a tribute to him that he still managed to kick so well,' a source close to Foster told the Daily Mail. 'The priority now is to sort it out.'

That does not mean United will invest in a new keeper though. David Gill, the Reds' chief executive hinted that with the signing of Anderson, Nani and Hargreaves, United completed the major business. And we have an army of goalkeepers here anyway.
