He was a goalkeeper who had become a cult hero at Real Madrid, playing a key role in ensuring one of the club’s most successful periods in its illustrious history.
Now, Keylor Navas has spoken out about his departure from the current Spanish champions, claiming that while it was a difficult time for him, he has no regrets because he has continued to improve.
After helping Los Blancos win three Champions League titles, the Costa Rican moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2019.
Los Blancos had been without a regular goalkeeper for three seasons before signing Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Courtois pushed Navas, who joined Madrid from Levante in 2014, out of the number one spot, resulting in the signing of Navas by PSG, the French champions.
Marca has quoted the veteran goalkeeper as saying that it was a “difficult period” and that “there are times when you have to choose” when he decided to leave.
Navas is full of praise for Zinedine Zidane, “with whom we won everything” and added that “God guided me towards an exit from Real Madrid.”
