listen to eric steele discuss AUSTRALIA'S GOALKEEPER DEVELOPMENT
Former Brighton Hove & Albion and Watford goalkeeper Eric Steele believes Australia’s multi-sports culture has contributed to the development of good goalkeepers.
Steele, who spent time coaching at Manchester United, says the variety of hand eye coordination sports in Australia provide a base for aspiring goalkeepers to be successful.
Steele has spent some time in Australia working at the Premier Football tuition program with Roy Hunter and says he has “liked what [he has] seen” when it comes to Australia’s recent development of goalkeepers.
Steele told Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s School of Football coaches must involve the goalkeeper during training instead of having them train separate.
“It’s been proven [goalkeepers] have to spend time with outfield players,” Steel said.
School of Football airs every Tuesday night from 7pm (AEDT) with Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio
