Keylor Navas

Real Madrid supporters are very nervous. The team lost 5 points in the last week and it could have been even worse if Los Blancos didn’t comeback against Villarreal after losing 2-0 in the 60th minute of the game. The defeat in Valencia hurt and Los Blancos didn’t react with the draw against Las Palmas at home. Some of the players listened to the supporters complaining about their performance, including Keylor Navas.

Some months ago, no one contested Keylor Navas, who won a lot of credit with his great performances in the last season. He was one of the key pieces to lift the Champions League trophy and saved a lot of points in La Liga. But this year the situation is different. The goalkeeper is not the same after the serious injury he suffered at the end of the last season and, after the surgery in summer, he’s been committing a lot of mistakes.

Zinedine Zidane keeps with his support to the Costa Rican goalkeeper but the supporters showed their anger against Las Palmas. We could listen boos after the third goal scored by Kevin-Prince Boateng. Keylor left the goal, but he didn’t arrive to the ball. Boateng touched it first and he only had to shot to the target to widen the gap in the scoreboard.

Besides, in the first goal scored by Tana, Keylor Navas could have done more, because the ball entered close to his hands, although it was Sergio Ramos’ mistake, who played a really poor game. On the other hand, we have to say that Keylor was about to save the penalty and he saved several shots from Jesé Rodríguez, keeping Real Madrid in the game.

In the game against Valencia, Keylor Navas could save the second goal scored by Orellana and against Villarreal he couldn’t save the shots from Trigueros and Bakambu. Besides, we have to remember also the goal conceded against Napoli, when Lorenzo Insigne shot from a long distance. Overall, he has conceded 8 goals in only three games. Obviously this is a problem of the whole defensive system, but Keylor Navas position is already in controversy among Real Madrid supporters. Especially, when Kiko Casilla is on the bench after great performances in Copa del Rey and at the beginning of the season in La Liga and Champions League.
