Ben Foster Insists Relegation Would Break His Son’s Heart

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has admitted that the failure to beat the Premier League drop would break a lot of hearts including his Baggies-supporting son. The west Midlands outfit are currently seven points adrift of Premier League, and they face a must-win game at Watford in order to salvage their season.

Speaking to reporters, Foster admitted it would be a heart-break for his family, who are West Brom supporters, he said: “This is my club now. I've been here seven years. I'm a West Brom fan, my family are West Brom fans. My little boy would break his heart if we got relegated!Nobody wants it, but it's the way the league is now. It's so tough. The last six seasons have been fantastic - I almost think at some points we've overachieved with the money we've spent.But anything can happen in the Premier League and we have to take heart from that.”

The Baggies have found little success since Alan Pardew took in-charge since November, and they have accumulated just a solitary league victory during this period. Nevertheless, the 56-year-old has stressed that he won’t step down from his role, and has tentative plans of getting the club back to the top-flight, should they suffer relegation.
West Brom have games against the likes of Watford, Swansea City and Bournemouth in the next month or so, and the results in those matches could decide whether the Baggies can preserve their Premier League status for a ninth season on the trot. The Baggies have struggled to score sufficiently over the course of the campaign, and this has not been helped with a hamstring injury to Daniel Sturridge, who arrived on loan in January. The Englishman is out with the muscular problem until April.
