Southampton star seeks inspiration from Man United legend

5 Mar

“Being a Newcastle fan I was also a big fan of Shay Given and Steve Harper”

Fraser Forster

“I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to train with them for a few seasons and work with them when I was at Newcastle.

“I still speak to them now and I’m pretty close to them. Schmeichel was the main idol as a kid and, as I got older, Shay and Steve Harper.”

Forster wrote a new page in the Saints’ record books last weekend – by reaching 708 minutes without conceding a Premier League goal.

But despite subsequently letting in four goals in a week, Forster is prepared for a fight with Joe Hart for the England No.1 spot this summer.

Forster said: “England are fortunate at the minute we’ve got great quality in that department. When there’s competition for places it makes you work that bit harder.
