New Tottenham signing Brad Friedel admits he has joined the club to be number 1.
Friedel will arrive at White Hart Lane when his contract expires next month and the 40-year old hasn’t joined Spurs for one last paycheck.
The American had the chance to re-join Liverpool but didn’t want to be considered a back-up to Pepe Reina.
“I like what I heard coming out of Tottenham, they are a club on the up and it’s well documented that had I moved to Liverpool it would have been as a No.2,” he said.
“I just felt that if I was to sign anywhere as a No.2 that would effectively be signing my retirement.
“I didn’t sign anywhere for the money, I signed to play and the chance to compete for my place with the exciting players.”
On Spurs’ top four credentials, he added “I really feel Tottenham have the chance to get into that top four. I hope to be in the starting 11.”
