Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel has revealed that he is looking forward to hanging up his gloves and finishing his pro coaching license.
"It's got to end sometime," Friedel said on Sky Sports' 'Goals on Sunday'.
"When I got the opportunity to come to Tottenham and the players they had in the squad - I was 40 years of age - and my wife and I were thinking should I call it a day then and more than likely move back to the states.
"But I said getting the opportunity to play again at such a great club like Tottenham, I had to give it a go, so we came down.
"I really did think it was going to be a one stroke, two season event. They were looking for a long-term number one goalkeeper and a 40-year-old isn't going to be your long-term guy.
"They found one in Hugo Lloris, but as it transpired I started doing my coaching.
"I'll be finishing my pro license. I have about 12 months to run on that so I'll be back and forth and obviously with the tie with Tottenham I'll try and come back as much as possible."
