Friedel: Spurs Squad Behind AVB

MOST COMMENTED

Former USA international goalkeeper Brad Friedel insists Tottenham's players were fully supportive of Andre Villas-Boas up until the end of his 18-month spell at the helm of the North London club. Villas-Boas was fired on Monday following Spurs 5-0 loss at home to Liverpool on Sunday.

"I think all the players in the changing room really wanted things to work out for Andre," Friedel said. "From day one that he came to the club, (he had an) open door policy, very good communication with the players. None of us were happy to see him go.”

Regarding the search for a new coach, the American said: “I'm sure the board are going to be hiring a very good manager to take us forward, who the players will all be behind again, because, at the end of the day, we are employed by Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, not by the manager they're bringing in.”
