MADRID – Santiago Solari warned Keylor Navas that "there is no better place" than the merengue club.
Given the increasing rumors of a possible departure of the Real Madrid goalkeeper, dissatisfied with his position as a substitute for Thibaut Courtois, Santiago Solari took a position of respect for his decisions, but warned him that no other team will be better . So be it in the banking sector.
"I'm not the one to recommend anything to anyone, the feelings of each player are his own.There is no better place for Real Madrid, I can say," said the coach at a press conference after 39; Saturday training.
In six months, Keylor Navas has moved from the undisputed "defender" of the Champions League title to a simple goalkeeper of the Copa del Rey team. The youth of the quarry and substitutes, like him, since Santiago Solari arrived.
And he is not satisfied. Although I saw it coming for several summers, with the directive focused on finding a European goalkeeper until they found Thibaut Courtois.
With every "possible arrival", from the unfortunate signature of David De Gea, to the attempt to sign Kepa who could only stop Zinedine Zidane, the coach who supported him with vehemence, Keylor Navas defended his position. With the game and with the combat messages. He warned that he would not lower his arms.
For Santiago Solari, his team is on the right track and has stated that it will not require new players. Its main objective is to recover Isco, Ascencio and Marcos Llorente.
But one month he played two games, round-trip of the last sixteen of the Copa del Rey against Melilla who scored only one goal, from the penalty spot, for an overall score of 10-1. The normal thing is that he no longer sees the action until January, when the Cup tournament returns, and that the entire Club World Cup takes place on the bench.
Since losing the title in the Champions League – a tournament that the predecessor of Solari, Julen Lopetegui, had reserved for him – his displeasure has grown. He played eight games of the 22 games, which have conceded eight goals, leaving the goal to zero on three occasions.
He had not had so little activity since his first campaign in the club, 2014-15, which served as a substitute for Iker Casillas and has played only eleven games during the year.
The replacement, therefore, is a step back for the 32-year-old goalkeeper.
According to the Spanish dam, the tico would have sought an exit at the end of the campaign, despite having a current contract until 2020. This after the club, according to the AS newspaper, was against the opening of the door in winter , because Solari would have remained with the only option of Kiko Casilla as a substitute arquero.
