Friedel wants to play on
Blackburn boss Brad Friedel wants to carry on playing for his club as long as possible. The American goalkeeper only recently signed a new two year deal with the club.
"Sometimes you need to be a little bit lucky but getting ready for games is just about training," Friedel told Galaxy Sport. "In it I do a lot of stretching exercises, plus I have good experience with yoga.
"I try to use the services of various physios, massages and so on. I try to be prepared the best as possible for each game, but I would not say I am different from other players.
"We are professionals and it is our job. I have signed a new two-year contract and it will expire when I am 39. If I am feeling this well then, I would be glad to carry on as I love football very much and want to play as long as possible."
