The 43-year-old has finally called time on his football career.
The USA legend came to England in 1997 and spent time at Liverpool, Blackburn and Aston Villa in his career. He has also had a short stint at Newcastle United in 1994, with spells at Brondby, Galatasaray and Columbus Crew early in his career.
He is of course a highly regarded player in the UK for his various achievements in the game, which saw him play a Premier League record 310 consecutive appearances between 2004 and 2012.
He is also one of only five goalkeepers to have scored a goal in the Premier League.
The Dutchman, who also played for Fulham in the Premier League, Tweeted:
Remarkable career with some of the best reactions saves ever!! Good luck for the future @friedel_b and enjoy the last days!!— Edwin van der Sar (@vdsar1970) May 14, 2015
The legendary goalkeeper spent six excellent years at Old Trafford. In that time he won four Premier League winners medals, two League Cup medals and a Champions League medal.
So there is no doubt the Manchester United legend's opinion will be greatly appreciated by Friedel, as his retirement draws in.
Friedel will now hope to play one final game for Tottenham Hotspur before he hangs up his gloves for good in the summer.
