  • What They're Saying

    "Normally, I would actually want the English team to win. I have played against many of the Chelsea guys, I know them, and you're always friendly at least professionally with them. But this time, I want Bayern to win because it will put us into the Champions League slot for next season, which I think we deserve. Over 38 games we finished ahead of Chelsea in the standings - so I hope Chelsea lose."

    -- Tottenham keeper Brad Friedel, a guest analyst on Fox's coverage of the Bayern Munich-Chelsea UEFA Champions League final. Tottenham's fourth-place finish in the EPL would normally be good enough to qualify it for next season's Champions League, but Chelsea will take its spot if it wins Saturday's final. Friedel, 41, has never played in the Champions League. (foxsoccer.com)
