Veteran goalkeeper shows there’s still fight in the old dog yet…
‘Wind-up merchant’ is not an term you’d typically associate with Tottenham’s 87-year-old goalkeeper Brad Friedel.
The mild-manner US star is known for his longevity, fitness and model professionalism – rather than fan-baiting.
But Friedel couldn’t resist winding up the Lyon supporters after a cracking last minute goal from Mousa Dembele (see below) sealed Tottenham’s Europa League progress in France.
Friedel has been countinually abused by Lyon fans throughout the game – chiefly because he is not Spurs’ other goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, formerly of the Ligue 1 outfit and still a fan favourite at the Stade Gerland.
