Vital Villan: Speaking on the official site Brad Guzan praised what Brad Friedel has achieved during his tenure in the Premiership and admits he was one of his heroes whilst he was growing up, so being able to train alongside him and learn from him is almost like a dream come true. 'I grew up admiring Brad - he was definitely one of my heroes. 'What he has done in his tenure in the Premier League is unbelievable. And his new consecutive appearance record is phenomenal. 'Growing up as a young American goalkeeper and watching him in the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, which was a phenomenal competition for the USA, was an incredible feeling. He was very welcoming in helping me adapt to a new club, a new city and a new style of football.' Full quotes: Guzan On Hero Brad

Putting the rumours to bed, O'Neill said simply: 'I don't know anything about it but he's certainly not for sale.'
