Voro led the club to safety with four wins in his five matches in charge after recalling veteran goalkeeper Santiago Canizares but Koemen claims that just prior to his sacking last month Voro advised him against playing the stopper.
"First-choice goalkeeper (Timo) Hildebrand was injured, so I told my goalkeeping coach that I wanted to start with Canizares, and that I didn´t have a personal feud with him," Koeman told Dutch television station het Gesprek. "Voro then told me that Canizares had a very bad name within the rest of the squad and that I should not put him in the line-up. So I started with our third-choice goalkeeper, who wasn´t up to the job."
