LONDON (AP)

Back from his summer break and ready for yet another season in his age-defying footballing career, Brad Friedel is savoring every last second of his time on the pitch.

At the age of 42, the American goalkeeper retains the hunger for the preseason routines and possesses the fight to try and stay in the Tottenham team.

But the player who holds the Premier League record for the most consecutive appearances - 310 - knows he'll have to hang up his gloves one day.

Away from the pitch, Friedel is spending time back in the classroom, earning coaching qualifications and planning for the future.

But at the same time, Friedel tells The Association Press that his ''body feels great, it feels the same as it has done the last 10 years.''
