Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has revealed that Claudio Taffarel is one of the main reason he joined the club.
“Taffarel is a legend for goalkeepers the world over but he is more than a legend in South America,” Muslera told FourFourTwo Turkey.
“The World Cup and everything else he won is still fresh in my memory, he is one of the main reasons I joined the club, it is an honour to work with him.”
Taffarel has been goalkeeper coach at Galatasaray since 2011.
The Galatasaray legend won the Turkish league, Turkish Cup, UEFA Cup and Super Cup during his playing days in Turkey.
Taffarel won the 1994 World Cup with Brazil as well as two Copa America titles.
Muslera joined Galatasaray from Lazio in a deal worth €12 million in 2011.
The 27-year-old played an integral role in the Lion’s back-to-back title winning seasons – 2011-13.
The Uruguayan international has also won the Copa America and finished the 2010 World Cup in fourth place for Uruguay.
