Foster Set For Surgery

It's been rumoured that Ben Foster would need another knee operation and now it's official.

The promising goalkeeper had had trouble with his knee at the end of his loan period at Watford and United had been notified about it.

England's and United's medical team both examined Foster's knee and the club have decided that the former Stoke keeper should be sent to a specialist who suggested that surgery would be the best option.

A club spokesperson told the official website: 'Ben has a cruciate ligament injury in his right knee and will require an operation in two to three weeks' time.'

That means he will surely miss the start of the season though it's not yet known how long he'd be out.

The news means that Tomasz Kuszczak will once again deputise for Edwin van der Sar, with either Tom Heaton or Ron-Robert Zieler ready to step in if necessary. Rumours suggested that Foster might be United's number one goalkeeper next season and at least the role of the understudy looked certain.

Best of wished to Ben, and hope he'll make a full recovery! He's a bright talent who would deserve to do well at United for years to come.

Surely it's not so serious? Miss the whole season? I don't think so.

its not expected the whole season but these things can last longer then expected.

It's true, just look at the case of Smith. Still, missing the whole season would be a bit more than only 'unexpected'. That would be stunning...
