'Horrible': £2.5m Premier League star reacts to seeing ex-teammate in Crystal Palace clothing
Ben Foster has FaceTimed Will Hughes to have a catch-up with his former teammate, after he swapped Watford for Crystal Palace.
What’s the story?
After seeing the midfielder in Crystal Palace’s training gear, Foster claimed he looked ‘horrible’ and that it ‘doesn’t look right’ to see.
Hughes hit back brilliantly, describing his new club’s gear as ‘beautiful’ – Crystal Palace fans will love to hear that.
You can see the entire conversation between Foster and Hughes below.
It’s clear that the pair are still great friends, even after the 26-year-old chose to leave Xisco for Patrick Vieira.
Where does Will Hughes fit in at Crystal Palace?
Interestingly, The Athletic believe Hughes decided to leave Watford in search of a new challenge.
With that in mind, you’d expect Crystal Palace to have laid out a convincing plan for him during negotiations.
If there is such a plan, we’re keen to see it, as we currently have no idea how Vieira will use Hughes at Selhurst Park.
The Frenchman has a wealth of options.
In midfield, he can choose from James McArthur, Conor Gallagher, Luka Milivojevic, Eberechi Eze, Jeffrey Schlupp, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jaïro Riedewald and now Hughes.
Vieira only uses a three-man midfield, so plenty of faces are going to be left out at times – he will have to rotate his options wisely.
However, as the old cliché goes, it’s a nice problem for a manager to have.
