Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has wished his friend and departing colleague Heurelho Gomes well after it was announced the Brazilian would be departing.

In an emotional interview on the club website, Gomes described the Hornets as a team who allowed him to "dream again" and said he was sad to be on his way.

Foster and Gomes had built up a strong friendship during their two years together at the club, with the former England international regularly describing his teammate as the "glue" that held the team together.

He did so most notably after Watford's FA Cup semi-final success over Wolves when Foster said he would refuse to play in the final ahead of Gomes.

Watford Observer:

"He’s like the glue that holds the team together," said Foster. "That old experienced head, he comes in with a smile on his face and he’s the guy that’s always chatting, always bouncy.

"He’s brilliant, the lads love him, I love him, and the goalie coach loves him.

"For a 38-year-old, he’s still incredible."

Responding to the video of Gomes's interview on Twitter, Foster said: "Gomi! Really gonna miss u my mate. The ‘glue’ of the changing room. Always positive, I’m glad I got to spend 2 years in your company. Enjoy whatever’s next cos you deserve it."
