“Taffarel is a legend out here,” Telles told ESPN.

“He is the most successful goalkeeper in the clubs history, everyone loves him, even fans of other teams have respect for him.

“He is also one of Brazil’s greatest keepers as well. Everybody likes him, in Turkey and Brazil. 

“He has a great personality as well, Taffarel is a joker, he is always telling jokes and crazy stories making us all laugh.

“It is an honour to be able to talk with him everyday and everyone can learn so much from him. 

“I have gained valuable experience working together with him.”

Taffarel has been goalkeeper coach at Galatasaray since 2011.

The Galatasaray legend won the Turkish league, Turkish Cup, UEFA Cup and Super Cup during his playing days in Turkey.
