As goalkeeper Ben Foster readies himself for a move to Birmingham City from Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson labels him the best England goalkeeper.
The 27 year old is set to sign for Blues in a £6 million deal which will see Foster get much more first team action than at Old Trafford and hopefully rekindle his chances of getting back on the England scene.
Foster has barely cleared the 20 game appearance mark since joining the Red Devils from Stoke City in 2005, that is one of the reasons for him losing his England place.
But Sir Alex remains of the opinion that the player will get back to his very best.
Speaking to reporters, he said: 'We accepted the bid from Birmingham City simply because we knew how concerned Ben was about his future and I can understand that.
'I think most of that comes from his disappointment of not having played enough games to get in the England squad this summer.
'I still feel very strongly about this, that Ben's the best England goalkeeper and I can't work out why he wasn't even considered simply because he didn't have enough football.
'Sometimes your conscience does come into it and you have to understand a player's feelings about it.
'Ben's been a terrific servant for us, he's been very unlucky with a couple of injuries he's had with us last season and I think he deserves the opportunity to do better for himself.'
