Veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel has confirmed he has no plans to retire from football, despite being the oldest player in the Premier League.
The goalkeeper, 42, saw his first-team slot at Tottenham threatened last season with the arrival of Hugo Lloris yet remains committed to Spurs after recently signing a new contract to stay at White Hart Lane until 2014.
Tottenham face a challenging season ahead as Andre Villas-Boas targets Champions League qualification and, as Friedel told Goal.com,
“At 42 years of age, the team comes first. Me and Hugo have a very good relationship… He’s a really nice guy and a really good goalkeeper. I’m going to play until my body says I can’t do it anymore or the club doesn’t want me.”
Lloris is expected to take the reins next season as the French starter prepares for the 2014 World Cup and has now a season of Premier League experience under his belt.
