New England Revolution appoint Brad Friedel as head coach”

The New England Revolution have hired former United States goalkeeper Brad Friedel as their new coach, the MLS club announced on Thursday.

"Brad has been a leader throughout his illustrious career and is regarded as one of the most successful players in USA history with experiences spanning multiple continents, leagues, and levels of competition", said Revolution investor and operators Robert and Jonathan Kraft.

"Brad has been a leader throughout his illustrious career and is regarded as one of the most successful players in U.S. history with experiences spanning multiple continents, leagues, and levels of competition", Revolution Investor/Operators Robert and Jonathan Kraft said in a statement on the club's website. We believe his playing and coaching experiences along with his commitment to compete at the highest level will allow him to be very successful in our league.

The Revolution have appeared in five MLS Cup finals but have never won the title.

He is the seventh coach in team history following Jay Heaps who was sacked during the season. He also played in MLS for Columbus Crew.

The New England Revolution will be in safe hands if Brad Friedel can coach soccer as well as he played.

Friedel, who backstopped the United States of America to the 2002 World Cup quarterfinals, was part of three World Cup teams and enjoyed an illustrious club career both at home, with the Columbus Crew, and overseas, with Liverpool, Tottenham, Galatasaray, Aston Villa and Blackburn. He also holds the record for consecutive appearances in the English Premier League, starting 310 straight games between 2004 and 2012.

According to Goal.com, Friedel emerged from an interview process and coaching search that included a number of big names-including recently resigned US men's national team coach Bruce Arena and former Revolution players-turned-coaches Giovanni Savarese, Pat Noonan and Steve Ralston.

He has been with the US under-19 team since January, also serving as an assistant on the under-20 team to head coach Tab Ramos.
