Time Krul ‘Must Feel Like A Million Dollars’

8 years ago

Following his outstanding performance between the posts against Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday, Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has won praise from Spurs custodian Brad Friedel.

Following Hugo Lloris’ head injury sustained against Everton, the veteran American ‘keeper deputised for the Frenchman but was disappointed with his team’s first half showing.

In the first half, we were very, very poor to our standards, but we still carved out two or three decent chances and he made two great saves.”

Despite his disappointment in his own side, Friedel took some time to consider the Newcastle number one’s performance further.

Krul was outstanding.

“He is going to go home feeling like a million dollars, that’s for sure.

“In the second half there were consequences of balls hitting him or him making great saves and it is a day he will remember, I’m sure. As a goalkeeper, we’ve all had them. He’s had one here.”
