Accomplished goalkeeping coach Hans Segers joined Fulham along with Martin Jol, Cornelis Jol and Michael Lindeman in June 2011.
Segers had previously worked with Martin Jol during the Fulham Manager’s three-and-a-half years as boss at Tottenham Hotspur. A popular figure amongst the squad, former goalkeeper Segers is the man charged with keeping Mark Schwarzer in shape and is also responsible for the development of the Club’s promising young shot-stoppers.
As a player he started his career in his homeland of Holland at PSV Eindhoven, but spent the majority of his time in England, most notably with Wimbledon where he played more than 260 games. In his eight seasons in South West London, the Dons never finished lower than 14th in the top flight and in 1994 he helped them to an impressive sixth-place finish.
He rates current number one Mark Schwarzer as one of Europe’s finest, and has tipped both David Stockdale and Neil Etheridge for the top. With his association with the English game dating back some 28 years, the Dutchman certainly knows what it takes.
