Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has stated that working with Claudio Taffarel has been an amazing experience.
“It has been amazing working with Taffarel, he knows everything there is to know about goalkeeping and is a really good teacher,” Muslera told FourFourTwo Turkey.
“He has great technical knowledge and really works the keepers hard.”
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.
Taffarel won the 1994 World Cup with Brazil as well as two Copa America titles.
Muslera joined Galatasaray from Lazio in a deal worth €12 million in 2011 and has featured as the Lions first-choice keeper since.
Despite having a poor season by his standards in terms of goals conceded Muslera is still regarded as being one of Galatasaray’s most important players this season.
The Galatasaray defence has primarily been blamed for the goals conceded tally. An average of 13.9 shots per-game are take by opposition sides – the highest in the top five.
The experienced keeper played an integral in the Lion’s back-to-back title winning seasons – 2011-13 – and played an important role in Galatasaray reaching the Champions League quarter-finals last season
