Tottenham's Brad Friedel is nearing retirement on the pitch, but we know he isn't going away completely. Today on reddit.com, the U.S. netminder took some time out of his day to answer any and all fan questions.
Among the fodder were many inquiries about his Spurs teammates, as well as Friedel’s time at Aston Villa, his future and the state of goalkeeping on the U.S. national team. Here’s what Brad had to say:
- "I know Gareth very well and I know he’s been playing a lot of golf this off-season. Regarding a possible transfer - I know nothing about this and have not spoken to him about it. And I, like every Spurs supporter and every member of Spurs staff, hope he stays for many, many years at Tottenham."
- "When Tim Howard decides to retire, in my opinion, the US can easily count on Brad Guzan to continue with the great work that Tim has provided for the US team for the past few years."
- Asked what was his greatest save, Friedel says: “Probably the penalty save vs South Korea in the 2002 World Cup.”
- "I’m currently taking my UEFA A license and I hope to complete this in one year’s time. And, if successful, I will then move on to my pro license and at that time I will make a decision on what I want to do in regards to coaching/managing. I want to learn as much as I can before I jump into that arena"
