David de Gea has enjoyed a sensational start to the season, winning wide acclaim for his performances.
The goalkeeper has been key in Manchester United's run to record six victories in a row and rise to third in the Premier League table.
There's even talk at Old Trafford of a title push, unthinkable under former boss David Moyes last season.
Former England international goalkeeper Nigel Martyn however feels that time under Moyes' coaching staff has been important in De Gea's development.
The ex-Leeds stopper sent a message to Gary Neville via his Twitter feed, hailing the effect of Chris Woods.
@GNev2 Gary great piece on De Gea , I think there is a lot of influence from Chris Woods in what I see.A lot of drills I used to do with him— Nigel Martyn (@nmartyn25) December 15, 2014
De Gea was upset when Moyes ditched Eric Steele to bring in Woods, but the former England international and Sheffield Wednesday and Rangers star quickly won over the Spanish goalkeeper.
He however was told he had no future at the club when Moyes departed, bringing in Frans Hoek instead
Hoek has worked with Manuel Neuer, and Edwin van der Sar during his glittering career, and De Gea recently described him as 'one of the best he has ever seen'.
