Brad receives AVB’s backing as he prepares for first team action

by Matthew Harris on December 6, 2012

Whilst it’s tempting to think that the goalkeeping situation at Spurs has finally been sorted, it would be no real surprise to see things change in the future. For now at least, Hugo Lloris is number one and that statement has almost been confirmed by Andre Villas-Boas who revealed that Hugo would play no part in tonight’s game with Pananthinaikos.

Instead, Brad Friedel takes over and amidst talks of a possible move back to former club Blackburn, AVB insists that he has no plans to sell the American International.

“I don’t know anything about Blackburn’s bid. We are trying to hold on to our best assets and Brad is certainly one of them,” Villas-Boas said.

“Brad has been excellent, I spoke to him and he has been such an important player for us. Rotation has not been because of performances. Both goalkeepers’ performances have been excellent. It gives me the ability at any time to throw a different keeper into the game. Hugo will not be involved in the Panathinaikos game.”

This could, of course, be Brad’s last season but for the moment at least, it seems that the goalkeeping pecking order at White Hart Lane has been established.
