Hoek has an excellent reputation after working with some of the worldâ€™s best glovesmen, having developed Reds legend Edwin van der Sar at Ajax in the early 1990s before preening the abilities of Victor Valdes and Pepe Reina during his time at Barcelona.
Asked by ManUtd.com if he is excited to work with van Gaal and Hoek, Anders said: â€œYeah, very much so, both Mr van Gaal and Frans Hoek the goalkeeping coach. I have heard a lot of good things and I am really excited to start working with both of them.
â€œYou benefit from having a period of time with every goalkeeping coach and it was quite a short period that we had with Chris Woods," Lindegaard continued. "We really enjoyed that time with him, or at least I did.
â€œBut just looking at Frans Hoekâ€™s results - and what he has done for different goalkeepers throughout his career - speaks for itself. Everyone would be excited about working with him and I am definitely excited to get started."
