Brad Friedel has been added as an analyst for this Saturday’s coverage of the Champions League Final. The American goalkeeper will be featured on FOX’s live coverage of the 2011 Champions League Final on U.S. television between Manchester United and Barcelona.

Friedel is currently one of the hottest properties in the British transfer market with Liverpool, Tottenham and West Bromwich Albion all vying for his signature. It looks most likely that Friedel will move from Aston Villa to Liverpool, to rejoin the team where he played from 1997 to 2000.

FOX’s pregame show will feature host Curt Menefee alongside analyst Brad Friedel and Eric Wynalda. The match commentary will be by Martin Tyler and co-commentator Alan Smith.

In last year’s Champions League Final, FOX featured former US national team manager Bruce Arena alongside Menefee. This year, FOX has made the wise choice in bringing Friedel in who, not only has the playing experience, but is also a much better presence in front of the cameras.
