Fromer Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed that Nemanja Vidic was
"horrible" to train with during his time at the Premier League giants.
Foster was a
squad player for most of his time at the the Red Devils, managing 23 appearances
in all competitions, while he won two League Cup trophies.
His time at Old Trafford overlapped with United legend,
Vidic, who helped the club to numerous trophies, including five Premier League
titles and a Champions League.
And despite admitting that Vidic was a nice guy off the
pitch, Foster claims that the Serbian was equally "horrible" in
"Just talking about Nemanja, off the pitch he was
fairly quiet wasn't he, but on the pitch, in training, that guy was a scary
bloke, honestly," Foster told the Squeaky Bum Time podcast.
"Horrible, honestly he did not care. If we were playing
a five-a-side or six-a-side or something, if you were on his team, I used to
think 'please don’t be on Nemanja's team, please don't'.
"Because if we didn't win, if I let a goal in that he
thinks I should have done better with, he was letting you know, and he would
dig you out and he was after everybody. Honestly, he was horrible in training
but off the pitch completely different."
