Foster relishing Henry link-up

Former Orlando Pirates striker Lyle Foster is hoping to hit the ground running at relegation-threatened Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco and looks forward to working with Thierry Henry.

Foster is set to jet out to France this week upon the issuing of his French work permit, after completing a massive transfer to one of the top European leagues.

The 18-year-old Bucs youth graduate signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Monaco and will initially join the reserve team before making the step up to the first side.

However, with the club currently battling relegation as they sit second-from-bottom after 18 rounds of fixtures, Foster could well find himself called up to help The Monegasques avoid the drop.

“The club is in a bit of a tough situation but, knowing how big the club is, I don’t think we’ll be in trouble for too long,” Foster tells KickOff.com.

“However, it obviously boils down to hard work, and I’m determined to give my best and hopefully I can get my chance sooner rather than later.

“I obviously need to first get into the thick of things and then try and give a helping hand to the club where necessary.”
