West Brom keeper Foster: I thought career was over

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster admits he feared for his career over a recent foot injury.

The former Manchester United keeper broke the navicular bone in his right foot - despite having nobody around him - against Everton at Goodison Park, leaving him unable to walk for eight weeks.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Foster said: "It was the bone that takes most of the weight through the foot when you push off. For keepers, who are always on their toes, it's a bad injury.

"I literally pushed and heard this click - and that was it.

"It was a horrible, horrible injury and it's been a long, hard road back. If that injury happens to an outfield player, it is really touch and go whether they keep on playing."
