West Brom keeper Foster hails "livewire" Yacob

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has hailed the impact of Claudio Yacob this season.

Foster praised him for the quiet, efficient and no-nonsense approach he has shown in making a quick transition to English football.

“He's amazing,” said Foster to the Albion website. “I'd never heard of the bloke. I'm not disrespecting him but I didn't know anything about him.

“I'm not the biggest football fan in the world anyway - but he's not someone I'd come across. He came into training on the first day and he's exactly like he is now.

“He doesn't say a word, he comes in and just opens up and smashes everyone in training.

“He's a little live wire."
