Villa keeper Friedel happy to handle Burnley boos

Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel had no problem with boos he copped at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Friedel's every touch was booed by the Burnley faithful - as they delivered their verdict on his long spell at rivals Blackburn.

The experienced stopper said it didn't affect him in the slightest in the 1-1 draw.

Friedel told Villa's website: "The barracking didn't affect me. I am too old for all that. I actually enjoy playing in atmospheres like that.

"It wasn't too hostile to be fair. A lot of people said hello when I arrived, had a go at me during the game and then said goodbye afterwards. So it's OK."
