Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has message for departing 'keeper Brad Friedel

One of Tottenham Hotspur's players has the best wishes of his club chairman as he heads for pastures new.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has sent a special message to the club’s goalkeeper Brad Friedel as the 43-year-old prepares to hang up his boots after an illustrious career.

In a piece for Spurs’ official match-day programme and later published on the club’s website, Levy not only spoke about this season, the job manager Mauricio Pochettino has done and the plans for the new stadium, he also wished the departing stopper all the best for the future.

As reported by the BBC last week, Friedel will retire at the end of this campaign, after a glittering campaign that includes 67 appearances for Tottenham, 27 for Liverpool, 130 for Aston Villa and 300 for Blackburn Rovers.

Alongside that he has won 82 caps for his country and he will go down as one of the all-time great Premier League ‘keepers.

“On a more immediate note, Brad Friedel retires at the end of the season to embark in his new career in media,” Levy wrote.

“I should like to thank Brad and wish him well and am delighted that he will be our Club Ambassador in the States.”

Friedel still has the chance to become the oldest player in Premier League history if he turns out at any time for Tottenham in their final match of the season against Everton next Sunday.
