Friedel rules out MLS return

Tottenham's 41-year-old American goalkeeer Brad Friedel says he is unsure about his future after the upcoming season but has ruled out a return to MLS, where he played for the Columbus Crew in 1996-97 before moving to England.

"How much more do I got? Let's get through this [season] first," he said. "I have a year left on my contract and at my age, it really does go year to year.

"We'll see how things progress and at that point, I'll make a decision on my future. If I couldn't do it anymore at the highest level, then I wouldn't want to play. I wouldn't sign a contract. ...

"It's getting harder and harder to consider [MLS] because of my age. I've been really fortunate to have these opportunities in the Premier League with big clubs. It's always superseded any negotiations that I've started with MLS. I think MLS is a great place compared to what it was and it's a tremendous asset to the country. It's going to keep on getting bigger and bigger but being a part of it as a player, time's against it. Let's put it that way."
