Birmingham keeper Foster holds no Man Utd grudge

Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster holds no grudge against former club Manchester United.

Foster insists he has no axe to grind with United but that a parting of the ways was inevitable after he started only one Premier League game - against West Ham - after November.

He told the Sunday Mercury: "I'd been at United five years. I really enjoyed my time there. I'd been out on loan for a few different teams, spent a couple of years at Watford, and seen that side of football.

"To be at Manchester United is a different world and the last couple of years have been at up and down for me, in and out of the team.

"You come to a point in your career when you realise it's not going for you at a certain club and that time had come for me.

"I was delighted to join Birmingham. It's a team with ambition, a team looking to continue on from last season's progress when they did excellently to finish ninth."
