Brad Friedel: Tottenham keeper to retire at end of season

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel will retire at the end of the season.

Friedel, 43, moved to England to join Liverpool in 1997 and has also played for Blackburn, Aston Villa and Spurs.

If the American plays in either of Spurs’ last two league games this season he will become the oldest player in Premier League history.

“I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve achieved in my career,” he said. “When I first started the journey I never imagined it’d be this long.”

“One thing I will miss is that day-to-day interaction with the staff and players,” added Friedel, who will be 44 on 18 May. “There really is nothing like it but my 44th birthday is here so I think it is a good time to call it a day.”

Friedel holds the record for the most consecutive Premier League appearances – 310, between August 2004 and November 2012 – and is one of only five goalkeepers to score a Premier League goal.
