Tottenham's Friedel hits out at Barthez over Lloris comments


Bookmark and Share

Saturday 22 September 2012

The saga of the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeepers took another turn as former Manchester United and France player Fabien Barthez criticised Andre Villas-Boas for preferring Brad Friedel over Hugo Lloris, with Friedel not shy in hitting back at the retired international, the Daily Telegraph has reported.



Lloris moved to Spurs from Lyon late in the summer transfer window but has yet to dislodge the experienced Friedel from the starting XI, sitting out the Premier League games so far and appearing only in the Europa League. The pair have insisted there is not a problem between them, but the Telegraph suggests Barthez’s comments could yet inflame tensions.


Barthez said: “[Lloris] is faster than Friedel, he jumps higher and he is very strong mentally. What is happening now is incomprehensible, but I’m not concerned. He will become the centrepiece of the club.


Friedel, however, retorted via Twitter: “Just saw Barthez comments. I normally don’t comment on such crap but when disrespected by someone I don’t respect I must. Barthez was ignorant, disrespectful and out of order to mention my name.


Lloris kept a clean sheet against Lazio on his Tottenham debut, insisting after the match that there is no issue between himself and Friedel, vowing to continue working hard to impress Villas-Boas and admitting that he can use the time on the substitutes bench to adapt better to his new surroundings.

"..sitting out ONE Premier League game so far and appearing only in the Europa League." Corrected for you.
