Brad Friedel deserves his place in footballing history, having signed a one-year deal with us, this would mean to be the oldest player to play in the Premier league, Brad needs to make one appearance on or after November 2nd during this season 2014-15, that could be as sub or starting, Brad's date of birth is May 18 1971, reaching 43 this year.
The record currently stands at at 43 years, 4 months and 26 days held by John Burridge. His senior career started in 1994 - 95 USSF apps 0; 1994 Newcastle loan 0 apps; 1995 Bronby on loan 10 apps; 1995 - 1996 Galatasary 30 apps; 1996 - 1997 Columbus Crew 38 apps; 1997 - 2000 Liverpool 25 apps; 2000 - 2008 Blackburn Rovers making 287 apps and he even scored. On February 21, 2004, in an away game against Charlton Athletic, Friedel scored a goal from open play in the 90th minute, from a corner kick. Friedel's goal equalized the game at 2-2, but seconds later Charlton scored again through Claus Jensen and went on to win the match 3-2.
He became the second goalkeeper in Premier League history (excluding own goals) to score after Peter Schmeichel for Aston Villa in 2001. He then joined Aston Villa in 2008-until-2011 making 114 apps; In 2011 Brad joined us and has been with us ever since, Brad has made 82 apps for the USA Team.
Tottenham confirmed on their website: 'Brad Friedel has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract with the club, which will also see him become a club ambassador with a particular focus on our work in his native United States. 'Our goalkeeper's ambassadorial role will have a wide-ranging remit that will include greater involvement in our global coaching programme and engaging with our 30 supporters clubs from across North America as we continue to increase our global presence and bring our international fan base closer to the club.
I don't know Brad on a personal note, but he is a fine upstanding gentleman when interviewed or on TV as a pundit during the world cup, for all that is good about this club and Brad Friedel give him that honour. spu 4 life.
