Tottenham’s first choice goalkeeper from last season says that he knows Spurs have other long term plans but that he still expects to stay on for another campaign. Brad Friedel signed on a two year deal last summer and stated that he is happy to see new arrivals.
“We will welcome any good addition to the squad,” said the American international.
“When I first signed here, there was no secret Tottenham would one day need a new long-term goalkeeper. I am 41, this could be my final season.
“I will do whatever asked of me, whether that is number one, two or three and will do it to the best of my ability.
“When you get older, it is easier to realise this is a team sport and the egos have to take a back seat if you want to be successful.”
There’s been plenty of speculation concerning a deal for French international Hugo Lloris and Brad has probably been around long enough to understand the club’s intentions if this happens. From his comments however, it seems as if he may be happy to hang around as the deputy and that could also be a good option for the club.
