Ben Foster: I was ready to retire
The former Manchester United goalkeeper has been an integral part of the Hornets this season, keeping seven clean sheets for Javi Gracia's charges who could move up to seventh with a victory over Wolves at Vicarage Road today.
"This season has been a breath of fresh air as I needed a move in the summer. No disrespect to West Brom, they're probably my team, but I'd got stagnant," he told Sky Sports.
"I was there for seven years and it probably just got a bit stale. You probably get stuck in your ways, doing the same things and it almost gets a little bit boring.
"If you'd asked me a couple of years ago when do you think you'll retire, I'd have said as soon as possible.
"I can't wait just want to go and ride my bike, but this season has opened my eyes and I've enjoyed it so much. So long as my knees hold out and my body stays fit, I'll keep going as long as possible."
