Former world number three Neal Foulds is in the hot seat for the new episode of the WST Podcast.
Foulds looks back on the key moments of his career, including victory at the 1986 International Open, and his run to the semi-finals at the Crucible the following year.
Presenter Michael McMullan also asks the 59-year-old about his role as a broadcaster and analyst for ITV and Eurosport. Foulds said: “That has been something I have enjoyed more and more. I still follow the game closely, because if I didn’t I wouldn’t expect to be in the job. When new players come along, I want to see what they are like and be up to date with the modern game. The general pubic want to hear about the new exciting talents, and it’s my job to know who they are.”
On the debate over who is snooker’s greatest ever player, Foulds is firmly in the Ronnie O’Sullivan camp, though he admits: “I didn’t think there would ever be another Stephen Hendry. And you can’t say there won’t be another Ronnie. I doubt it, but you can never say never. Stephen won so much over a shortish period of time. But Ronnie has now won more, over a longer span. There was a time when everyone thought he might be an under-achiever, but it was obviously he was something special, and he still is. His world title this year, in some ways was his greatest achievement because of the burning intensity that he took out to the table.”
