Top 10 Goalkeepers Of The Premier League: 4 - Brad Friedel

Brad Friedel

At 41 years of age and still plying his trade in The Barclays Premier League it is fair to say that when it comes to goalkeeping, Brad Friedel is a legend. Having started his career with a loan spell at Newcastle – Friedel eventually signed for Liverpool in 1997. Having played now for 15 years in The Premier League spanning over four different clubs – Friedel has cemented his place at each club as the number one goalkeeper.

Although he found it difficult playing for such a club like Liverpool – Friedel showed that this spell did not knock his confidence. He spent eight years at Blackburn – helping them to promotion.

Upon his transfer to Aston Villa – Freidel joined an elite group of goalscoring goalkeepers. With a 90th minute goal from a corner kick – although that group has four now, Friedel was the second only keeper at the time to do so.

Unfortunately for Freidel – his immense streak of 310 consecutive Barlcays Premier League appearances came to an end in 2012. He has been dubbed as 'Superman' and 'The Human Wall' throughout his career – and his stellar performances earned him number four in this list.
