Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel isn't surprised by Tim Sherwood's smooth transition from coach to manager.
Friedel, likely to be utilised again for the upcoming European tie against Ukrainian outfit Dnipro, feels the 45-year-old's time working under previous Spurs managers has helped make for a smooth transition.
"Like [Sherwood] said when he first got appointed, there wasn't this big settling in period for him because he's been at Tottenham for so many years and he knows the players," Friedel told talkSPORT.
"We have had a lot of very good training sessions to understand his style of football and what he wants to implement, and a lot of the players who didn't know him now know his demeanour and what he wants, so it is all good so far."
