Brad Friedel: Feels Spurs have the quality to progress

Spurs came from two goals down to draw their Europa League quarter-final first leg 2-2 against the Swiss side and will have it all to do after a disappointing performance.

Friedel revealed that manager Andre Villas-Boas was unimpressed with the first-half display but the veteran United States international feels that a semi-final place is still within reach.

"When you're down 2-0, to come back, we can take a little bit of encouragement from that," Friedel told ITV.

"But we didn't start the game well, we know that and the gaffer had some words at half-time.

"It will be tough out there, but we've got a lot of quality in our squad."

The most worrying news of the night was a serious-looking injury to Gareth Bale, who went over on his ankle close to the end.

"I didn't get a good view of Gareth's (injury)," Friedel added.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
