U.S. Goalkeeper Brad Friedel Declares Bankruptcy After Ohio Soccer Academy Runs $8 Million in Debt

Bankruptcy: Enjoy watching Brad Friedel play? You’ll get to watch him for a few more years. The American goalkeeper, who earns about $64,000 per week playing for Aston Villa, declared bankruptcy after his non-profit soccer academy in Ohio ran up nearly $8 million in debt. Sponsors left and parents, apparently, weren’t pleased at the $32,000 per year financial commitment. Friedel, 39, will be out of contract this summer. [Yahoo!UK]
