Friedel Commits Future To Rovers
Blackburn Rovers' goalkeeping department has been covered until 2009 at least with the excellent news that Brad Friedel has agreed a new deal with the club.
Friedel has agreed a one-year extension to his current deal that will take him through until 2009, when he will be 38-years-old and almost certainly see him end a career with Rovers.
In a day and age when so many are out for all they can and some don't even have a shave without consulting their agent Friedel agreed the deal himself without his being present, over a quiet chat with Rovers chairman John Williams.
"I love this club. My agent is Paul Stretford, but I did the deal myself. I had a nice chat over a cup of coffee with chairman John Williams. There was no need to go in and have a big battle."
Friedel has a Soccer School in his native America and it is no secret that he intends to play a more hands on approach in this in the future, but we now know this will not be until 2009 at least.
Do I think 2009 will be the end of the Friedel Rovers story? I honestly hope not and genuinely think that he could carry on until at least 40 if he wanted.
