Tottenham star Brad Friedel insists that he is prepared for the battle with ‘friendly’ Hugo Lloris for the number one jersey.
The 41-year-old American kept his place in Andre Villas-Boas’ starting line-up against Reading, despite expectation that the £8million signing from Lyon could end his 308 straight Premier League appearances.
“Hugo has come in and is a really nice person,” Friedel told talkSPORT.
“He’s a super goalkeeper but we have two other really good goalkeepers in Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini.
“We have friendly, and healthy, competition for places. Hopefully we will have long runs in all the cup competitions and there’s going to be plenty of matches to share around.”
