Tottenham signing Friedel: Galatasaray great time in my career

New Tottenham signing Brad Friedel admits playing in Turkey was one of the great times of his career.

Friedel played for Graeme Souness at Galatasaray.

He said: "One of the best times I had was when I played in Turkey.

"For a young American kid from the Mid-west to go there and be able to experience Muslim culture was absolutely fantastic.

"Some might not have done it, but for me it was one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life - in a good way.

"People ask me what I thought of Istanbul and I loved it.

"I know supporters between Fenerbahce and Galatasaray get a bit crazy, but it was the best move I ever made in football."
