    Have Him For Friend

    Could there a problem with the second sentence using "for":

    1 "I have Michael as a friend."
    2 "I have Michael for a friend."

    I found on google usages of "for" like sentence 2, but I cannot find a good definition in dictionaries. Could the usage in sentence 2 be colloquial or imformal?
