Van Gaal chooses new goalkeeper trainer, disappointed Lodewijks makes way

Patrick Lodewijks will not be part of the new Orange staff under Louis van Gaal. The goalkeeper trainer confirms to Algemeen Dagblad that his time at the KNVB is over.
The former goalkeeper of FC Groningen, PSV and Feyenoord joined in 2018 when Ronald Koeman โ€” with whom he also worked at Everton โ€” joined. Lodewijks continued to work with the Dutch team under Frank de Boer, but now has to make room. โ€œAt Orange you know: a new coach can want his own people. Okay, inherent in our profession. But a pity is that I cannot follow up all kinds of projects that KNVB-breed have started on goalkeeper since 2018, he expresses his disappointment to the AD.
Anyone who will be the successor to Lodewijks must be seen: however, the AD mentions the name of Frans Hoek, Van Gaals regular goalkeeper trainer. The 69-year-old Amsterdammer will soon start his third employment with Orange. Former Sparta teammates Danny Blind and Henk Fraser are going to assist him is the intention. Dwight Lodeweges was assistant under Koeman and De Boer, but recently left.
