‘I do love Jesse’: Free agent linked with Leeds says he absolutely loves Marsch

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ben Foster has been doing some Premier League predictions ahead of the new season.

Foster, interestingly, doesn’t have a club heading into this new season after being released by Watford, but it may not be long before he finds himself back in the Premier League.

At the age of 39, his days of being a number one are probably over, but he could be a competent backup at any mid-table club.

One side that have been linked with Foster are Leeds United, and interestingly, the goalkeeper had nothing but good things to say about Marsch as he did his predictions.

What’s been said?

Foster predicted Leeds to finish 16th, but he was full of praise for the Whites’ gaffer.

“I think it will be another tough season for them. Raphinha has gone out of the door, Kalvin Phillips has gone out of the door. They’ll miss them. They are recruiting, but still. I do like the manager though. I do love Jesse Marsch. I don’t think they’ll get relegated, but I think they will struggle, I have them down in 16th place,” Foster said.

Not a bad option

Foster says that he loves Marsch, and he may well get a chance to work under him in the near future.

Indeed, it’s been reported for some time that Leeds are in the market for a new backup goalkeeper – preferably a goalie with experience, and they don’t come more experienced than Foster.

The ex-Watford man has played countless games at the top level, he’s won trophies, tasted relegation and even played for England.

He’d be an excellent mentor for Illan Meslier, and if the worst were to happen and the Frenchman was to get injured, he’d be a more than competent stand-in.

Marsch could do a lot worse than signing Foster this summer.
