In an interview conceded to "MD", the ex trainer of goalkeepers of Holland and of the FC Barcelona, Frans Hoek, has analysed the possibility that Jasper Cillessen was the guardameta chosen to relieve to Claudio Bravo in the Barça, something that would see with very good eyes when understanding that Cillessen is a very complete and solvent archer.

"I can speak of him because I know it to having worked with him in the selection. We were together in the World-wide with Louis go Gaal of seleccionador and he was the headline. It is a cold goalkeeper, very balanced, that dominates all the facets of the game. To the Dutch style, that is to say, is not that it was spectacular in a thing in concrete but to technical and tactical level gives a good performance to all the levels. With the feet has sufficient level as to play in the Barça without problems...", it has evaluated Hoek.

"It was furo for him that changed him, but had to do the best for the team"

"I think that in the Barça can even improve because it will train and will play with big footballers. And no only I say it by Messi, Suárez and Neymar, also by Iniesta, Hammered, Mascherano... Work with them will go him very well", adds. And it has remembered a curious scene that lived in the quarter-finals of the World-wide of Brazil 2014, when they Go Gaal decided to substitute to Cillessen to plant to Tim Krul in the penaltis.

"Of that episode remain me with the mental fortress of Jasper. It was hard for him that changed him, but we had to do the best for the team. And it was to put to Krul in the penaltis. The two following parties, the semis and the final of consolación, played them Cillessen and his performance did not go down", remembers Hoek.

"The decision to do the change no advance it to him to Cillessen, had been negative because it would have been him giving gone back during the party. Only we knew it Louis, Tim and I. We look for the best for the team and went out well. But after that batch went back to play Cillessen and did it well. It was our goalkeeper title", adds, to conclude that "Cillessen will integrate well in the Barça and will win a lot of titles to the orders of Luis Enrique, to the that know well". This, as long as it finish closing the signing.
