Nacho: It is a pleasure to have Keylor Navas in goal


Real Madrid home-grown defender Nacho Fernandez confessed the team is very happing for beating Levante 3-0 in La Liga, but specially for keeping one clean sheet more.

The centre-back played a great game replacing Sergio Ramos and he was very satisfied: “It was an important match because our last games home had not been good. We played a good game and we managed to keep a clean sheet, so we are very happy for all this.”

Yet, the 25-year-old admitted they didn’t perform at the expected level in the first minutes: “It is true we started the match a bit relaxed, but they didn’t have clear chances to score. We got better and at the end this is a very positive result for us.”

Asked about the superb performance Keylor Navas put in, Nacho said “he is there to make saves and he is doing great.” “It is a pleasure to have him on goal, because he gives us security. We hope he will continue like this because that will be a good sign for Real Madrid,” he added.

Nacho also assessed Jese Rodriguez’s performance, as the winger scored a brilliant goal coming in from the bench: “He might not get the minutes of action we all want to get, but he’s been a catalyst, he has scored and we’re happy with him.”
