Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster did not hesitate to choose Diego Costa as one of the most uncomfortable rivals he has faced. The British goalkeeper spoke of the Hispanic-Brazilian and of the fame for being a constant nuisance on the pitch.
It’s a good question and it’s Diego Costa because he was just a filthy little rat, ” Foster said on The Cycling GK YouTube channel.
“He just grunted and scratched and he wouldn’t leave you alone and he wouldn’t give you a second of breath. And you know what, Luis Suárez was also a bit like that. It was horrible to play against him, he would kick you, scratch you, do anything. But they are just pure winners, I love that type of player. You want those kinds of players on your team. Animals! ”Foster added.
Another type of player that Foster believes is critical to success is a level-headed, tough-playing figure. “(I was with Roy Keane) only for a while and to be fair, it scared the hell out of me. He was a scary guy, ‘’ said Foster.
“Nemanja Vidic was also a little ‘sick’, to be fair. I would say Nemanja. I’d gladly put my head on the end of someone’s boot to prevent a ball from getting in. Yes, crazy, “said the 37-year-old goalkeeper.
Finally, Foster assured that Carlos Tevez is the player with the worst attitude in training that he has ever seen. “Carlos Tevez, 100%. He was a disaster in training, he was not interested in them at all. He didn’t care, training wasn’t even a thing for him. It was horrible. But on a Saturday afternoon, oh my gosh, what a player. Just that winning mentality, he gave everything he had and was an incredible talent on the field on a Saturday afternoon, “he said.
