Manchester United goalkeeper coach Chris Woods could remain at the club - despite the fact Louis van Gaal has brought in his experienced assistant Frans Hoek.
The Manchester Evening News report how the former Everton goalkeeping coach could be handed the chance to convince Van Gaal that he is worthy of a place on his coaching set-up.
Hoek has specialised in training goalkeepers in the past - with the likes of Edwin van der Sar, Victor Valdes and Manuel Neuer among the list of custodians he has helped to train.
However it is believed Hoek could assist Van Gaal in the general training of Manchester United's outfield players - rather than working specifically with the likes of David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard.
Woods, who moved to Manchester United from Everton at the start of the season, remained at the club following the departure of David Moyes.
Whereas fellow former Everton coaches Steve Round and Jimmy Lumsden were shown the door following Moyes' sacking.
Woods is likely to have his future clarified after he returns from the World Cup where he will be working with the American national team.
