Adrian benefits from Woods arrival

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian is hoping the arrival of Chris Woods to the new management team will help him become an even better keeper in the Premier League next season.

Woods became the first member of Slaven Bilic's backroom team and has a proven track record as both a player and a coach.

The 55-year-old won the European Cup with Nottingham Forest and was understudy to Peter Shilton in the 1986 World Cup.

Woods has made a successful switch into coaching where he has worked with some of the best keepers in the world including David de Gea at Manchester United.

Adrian is now hoping to draw on all those experiences and feels these are exciting times for the Club as we prepare for a new adventure under Slaven Bilic.

Adrian said: “Chris has arrived and we have been working very well together. It is a different style but this is good because now we have other options to train in the goal.

“I think Chris can help me and the other keepers to be better. I hope he will make me even better. If you have an experienced goalkeeping coach you have the option you to improve your performance.

“It is very exciting for the Club to be in the Europa League. For me this is really important and this is going to be an exciting season for everyone at West Ham.”
