Maik Taylor: "I am Really Looking Forward to Working Here"

Following the appointment of experienced former Birmingham City stopper Maik Taylor as the club's new goalkeeping coach, the 47-year-old spoke to club journalists and welcomed the opportunity to join the Saddlers.
Taylor, who knows the Midlands well from his eight years with near-neighbours Birmingham City, played for a whole host of clubs during his twenty-one-year career, including the likes of Barnet, Southampton, Fulham and Millwall, and will bring plenty of knowledge to the role.

Maik, a former Northern Ireland international with eighty-eight caps to his name, admitted that he has philosophies of his own but is looking forward to working closely with new manager Darrell Clarke as they look to steady the ship following last season's relegation to League Two.

Speaking via the club's official website, Maik said; "I am really looking forward to working here. I am looking forward to getting started.

"I have my own philosophies as a goalkeeping coach, but I am going to work closely and alongside what Darrell wants in terms of how he wants to play and use the goalkeeper in a tactical sense.

"I spoke to Darrell, and he had had spoken to Gary Bowyer at Bradford City where I worked towards the end of last season, and he said he had heard good things. It’s a good for me and, hopefully, will be a good for Walsall.

"Living local obviously helps but it is a fantastic opportunity, it is a great club, I have played here many times."
