Friedel discussed his ambitions with the Daily Mail.
"Yes it does, whether itâ€™s coaching or itâ€™s management," Friedel said. "From my standpoint, itâ€™s a great area to watch a game from and to learn from. When I started doing my coaching you pick an area on the field that you see best from, and mineâ€™s obviously â€“ if youâ€™re doing phases of play for example â€“ you go and you stand behind the goalkeeper and you can see everything.
"Of course itâ€™s something that Iâ€™m interested in [coaching], definitely. Iâ€™ll finish my A license sometime just after the summer. Itâ€™s been a long haul. I heard a player on one of the radio programmes the other day saying â€˜Iâ€™ll start my badges, they can fast-track players through."
