Keylor Navas left Real Madrid for good as it seems. Keylor’s close friends in Real Madrid posted emotional farewell messages on Instagram and Twitter. Sergio Ramos, Vasquez, Gareth Bale, and Modric posted on social networks and thanked Costa Rican goalie for a beautiful period in Real Madrid.
Keylor Navas is leaving a legends
It’s not easy to leave a football club as a legend. Keylor stepped on top of the mountain with Real Madrid and stayed there for a few years.
If you have seen a movie about Real Madrid winning Champions League, then you probably know that players call Keylor as a talisman. It seems right because Keylor became Real Madrid player in 2014 and since then Los Blancos won 3 champions leagues. It’s been five wonderful years winning 12 trophies including La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup.
Keylor Navas was the main man for Zidane’s team
Keylor had few coaches in Real Madrid. Keylor’s success started with Zinedine Zidane. During that period he won almost every trophy and became Los Merengues number one keeper. Zidane always admired Costa Rican keeper every time and never asked for a new keeper. Keylor Navas never lost a single Champions League play-off ties as a Real Madrid player. Keylor has some incredible stats that other goalies can repeat for a long time.
Navas played 162 matches for Real Madrid and conceded 159 goals. It’s not a perfect ratio, but keep in mind that he had 52 clean sheets. The goalkeeper joined Real Madrid in 2014 from Levante. Keylor was a very popular goalie in La Liga even before joining Real Madrid. Navas played 70 games for Levante and had 30 clean sheets. Costa Rican had almost perfect stats in Levante: up to 42% clean sheets.
Farewell messages from Real Madrid players
A few minutes ago, Gareth Bale posted a pic of Keylor and thanked him for beautiful moments. First, there was Sergio Ramos who posted on Instagram and recalled all the great moments with Keylor. Real Madrid captain mentioned that Keylor does not need luck because he is the lucky himself.
Meanwhile, Lucas Vazquez posted a photo of him and Keylor celebrating another trophy, and with the post, Spanish player wishes real success in next adventure.
Keylor was close to every Real Madrid player. Everything comes to an end, and for Keylor, it’s to move onto the next destination. Spanish “Marca” experts think that PSG will be another great chapter in Keylor’s career.
