Goalkeeper Friedel signs new Tottenham deal at 41
Veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel has signed up for another season
at Premier League club Tottenham.
Tottenham says the 41-year-old American, who joined the London
club in June 2011, has signed a new contract through to 2014.
The deal was agreed despite Friedel’s place in the starting
lineup for league matches no longer being guaranteed since Hugo
Lloris joined from Lyon in August.
Friedel’s run of 310 consecutive matches in England’s top
division, stretching back to May 2004, came to an end in October
when Lloris broke into the team.
Friedel made 82 appearances for the United States. He played for
the Columbus Crew, Galatasaray and Brondby before moving to England
in 1997 to join Liverpool.
He spent eight years at Blackburn, then three years at Aston
Villa before joining Tottenham.
