TRANSFER NEWS: Friedel To Replace Reina?

By on April 12, 2011


If Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina happens to leave the club in the next transfer window, its reported that Liverpool boss Kenny Daglish might sign 39-year-old Brad Friedel as a decent replacement.

The 39-year-old American, whose contract will run out at Aston Villa at the end of the season, is currently on Kenny Dalglish’s list of options if Pepe Reina leaves the club in the next transfer window. Pepe Reina has hinted that he’d rather move to other clubs than stay for another long season without Champions League football.

Manchester United and Arsenal are very keen for his signature, which would leave Kenny Dalglish in a wild search for an experienced goalkeeper – and Brad Friedel is certainly one of the few that have topped his list. Friedel – whose amazing career in England officially began at Liverpool – would fit the bill. He will turn 40 in May, but age is definitely not a factor for him and his record for consecutive top-flight appearances is an unprecedented 259 games.

    at 40 Friedel is far too old we need to look for someone younger. I hope Pepe stays but if he goes I hope Liverpool ask at least £35 m in return to whichever team he leaves for and Kenny lines up someone younger like Igor Akinfeev or Mark Schwarzer as a temporary replacement or should sign Maarten Stekelenburg.
