David De Gea’s former Manchester United coach Eric Steele backing English goalkeepersposted by John053622 on November 20th, 2019
Premier League clubs shouldn’t longer have to appear overseas to fulfill vacancies that are goalkeeping, as stated by the man who brought David De Gea at 2011 to Manchester United.
De Gea’s contract at Old Trafford expires next summer and Eric Steele, who coached the Spaniard from Atletico Madrid, thinks there is more English gift than any stage in the past ten years and there must no longer be any requirement to look abroad for replacements.
Steele has been United’s goalkeeping coach when De Gea arrived in England to replace Edwin van der Sar after which educated him for his first two seasons at the club.
He says there has been a dearth of English goalkeeping gift available back then that is why he – and several other Premier League clubs – appeared to deliver in’keepers from overseas. But that may not have to be the situation nine years if United can’t tied De Gea to new terms and need to supply a replacement.
“Yeah, I always did it. And as you know, it had been at a really big club. At the time, I had to have a good look around,” Steele told Sky Sports News.
“I seem today, and it’s come half ring – not very full circle yet, but it has got to promote us. As an England set-up, it is great to have greater English keepers playing in the Premier League, and long may it last.”
Steele is now a key figure within the FA, in the way to develop young talent, training the country’s goalkeeping coaches.
The advantages of that talent growth are showing definite effects with Jordan Pickford (Everton), Tom Heaton (Aston Villa), Nick Pope (Burnley), Dean Henderson (Sheffield United, on loan from Manchester United), Angus Gunn (Southampton) and Aaron Ramsdale (Bournemouth) making a healthy list of English goalkeepers – including Watford veteran Ben Foster – playing in the Premier League.
“We’ve probably now got the very best depth [from English goalkeeping], therefore St George’s Park has functioned. The DNA is perfect. We are currently seeing the fruition of the – we’ve won championships. And developed a lot of gift,” Steele explained.
He states Ramsdale’s progression, who has started all four Premier League games for Bournemouth so far this year, provides the perfect illustration.
“Ramsdale was with me in England’s junior teams a few decades back, he carried on throughout the U20s, U21s, and he’s now playing Premier League soccer. That’s development, that is totally what we want.
“Now he’s playing one of those seven English goalkeepers in the Premier League. We’ve got a depth of talent which should see us good for the next 10-15 years.”
Steele believes a revolution in was indicated by the arrival in England of De Gea.
“Back then, in terms of the work you’d do on the practice pitch, it would probably be 70 per cent focused on the palms – making sure you keep it from the internet – and 30 per cent on the feet, with the chunk. Now, it’s probably reversed,” he continued.
“Premier League coaches have realised that the positive effect keepers can have on the team. It’s developed immeasurably over the last 10 decades.”
Steele says goalkeepers are sent out to practice. He says they involved in attacking and defensive drills in the heart of the team, and therefore are predicted to moves in training, and in matches.
Is it no longer sufficient to be a?
“You have got to have this. I still believe you need to keep the ball. But look at Alisson, seem at Ederson. Check out Pickford for England,” Steele said.
“Steve Holland (Southgate’s assistant) did a semester here [with the senior England team ] yesterday – an entire session about the best way to defend set plays. But he did that in a match environment, in order that brings the .
“It is familiarity with both the hands and the toes – deal with all the shots as well as the crosses still, but out of possession, goalkeepers now have to sweep behind their own defence.
“It’s about a sense of danger, and an awareness of how to create attacks. And you have to do that within a team framework”
