Ben Foster has spoken of his desire to get back to playing football again after signing a new two-year-deal with Watford. The 37-year-old goalkeeper committed his future to the Hornets and said that he was delighted to see the club putting their faith in him once again.
Ben Foster said: “It’s nice, it’s really nice. As a player, 37-year-old especially I know I’ve got to back myself, I know I feel good. I could probably go on and do another bit after this. Obviously, it’s nice to have the backing of the club to place their trust in me to give me a two-year-deal. I won’t lie I did enjoy the lockdown, having a good time, spending time with the family that I normally wouldn’t get, I got to spend my birthday at home, took the bike out as much as I could to keep my fitness up, playing in the garden with kids, it was great. But you do also have that hunger to want to get going again and I think every footballer would agree. After a normal season you get six or seven weeks off and by the time that’s finished, you’re hankering to get back. It’s been a bit weird, the season hasn’t finished yet, but I think everyone’s in the same boat, and we want to get back to it.”
