Tim Howard to soften stance on Brad Friedel in new book

The ESPN FC team discuss Tim Howard's statements that Brad Friedel did not try to block his move to Manchester United in 2003, but Craig Burley believes the facts should have been sorted before the publish of his book.

Everton and U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard said on Tuesday via Twitter statement that he will strike all future references in his new autobiography to allegations that compatriot and fellow No. 1 Brad Friedel "actively tried to block" his 2003 move from Major League Soccer to Manchester United.
