Foster Stronger Than Ever

Foster Stronger Than Ever

Ben Foster says he's stronger than ever as he's nearing his comeback after knee surgery.

The 24-year-old former Stoke man had a bone from his knee removed by surgery in June and is expected to be sidelined until January. It came as a dreadful blow for him as he had been tipped to pose a serious threat to Edwin van der Sar's place in the team.

However, Foster who had already played for England, does not dwell on what might have been, knowing that does no good for him.

'It was all looking rosy for me and big things were expected and talked about for me this year with United and England,' Ben told the official wbsite.

'The injury was a devastating blow. You could start tormenting yourself with thoughts of what might have beenhappening this year for me. Thoughts about United and England went out of the window for me very quickly.

'After the initial upset I just got my head round it and blanked out the `what if' thoughts. I couldn't afford to think or worry about it."


So what can one do? Concentrate on the positives, of course, if there are any.

'I have a great opportunity to work on other areas like strength and spring. It could make me a better goalkeeper.

'The last time I suffered the same cruciate injury in the same knee was when I was at Stoke and I was out for six months then. But I remember when I did come back I felt so much stronger physically. I became a man throughout that.

'I am already feeling stronger now and probably the fittest shape I have ever been in my whole career. That's a big plus from all this.'
