Personally I don't think this is true. If a coach understands how it's done and is aware of a players style he can teach the player how he can do it. As long as the coach understands the techniques he can pass them on. (A great player might not understand the technique involved he just does/did it (naturally) where as a poorer player having had to work on it could understand it better so be able to teach others - nothing is set in stone).I don't think any GK coach is perfect. They all have weaknesses and strenghts. I don't think a GK coach can learn a keeper something he himself isn't good at. Achterberg clearly isn't good at learning our keepers to deal with crosses for example. Probably because he don't know how to deal with them himself. How will he then be able to learn our keepers doing that?
I think we need more than one GK coach so we can cover everything a keeper need.
As for Achterberg it seems evident he struggles to improve our goalkeepers Mentally, physically and technically despite all his badges and experience he has limited ability in coaching.
