“Milan did a big purchase,” the 65-year-old told “Lopez is a goalkeeper who can do everything. Technically he is complete and on the psychological level he’s proven this year that he can cope well with stress. He’s an extraordinary person with only one flaw: he hates conceding goals and I saw him getting angry in training too.

“Lopez has a good grip and he pushes with both legs. He’s excellent in the air & with his feet. He’s one of the best keepers I’ve coached in my career. His main quality? His reactivity. Despite his height (1.96m), he has very fast movements.”
