Erwin Mulder embraces hard work under Margetson

First team

Erwin Mulder is embracing the opportunity to work with Martyn Margetson and learn from Swansea City's vastly-experienced goalkeeping coach.

The highly-rated Margetson joined the club last month following the appointment of Steve Cooper as head coach – combining the new role with his ongoing duties with the England national team.

The former Manchester City and Wales stopper - who was also part of the Dragons’ backroom team under Gary Speed and Chris Coleman - arrived in Swansea boasting an impressive CV that includes spells at clubs such as Everton, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Cardiff.

Upon his arrival, he threw down the gauntlet to the club’s three senior keepers in Mulder, Kristoffer Nordfeldt and Steven Benda to grasp the number one shirt this season.

The Dutchman, 30, has been very impressed by what he has learned from Margetson in the few short weeks that they have worked together, and is looking to absorb more of his widespread knowledge moving forward.

“I really enjoy working with Martyn. He’s got so much experience,” said Mulder.

“It’s really good to be on the pitch with him every day. It’s hard work but I love it.

“Every goalkeeping coach is different and he has his own way of doing things.

“But the most important thing is that he helps Kristoffer, Steven and I get better every day. He also does an amazing job with set-pieces. 

“I’m really looking forward to working with him over the course of this season.”
