Keylor Navas: We all want to keep clean sheets


Keylor Navas says he is delighted to keep another clean sheet and the whole team works hard defensively.

Los Blancos kept their fifth consecutive shut out of the season with a 1-0 win over Granada on Saturday afternoon – Karim Benzema grabbing the only goal of the game in the 55th minute.

Navas played his part in the win making some vital saves, particularly towards the end, as the visitors went in search of a late equaliser.

Speaking to reporters afterwards, the Costa Rican said: “As a team we are always trying to do our job well. We all want to keep clean sheets and we’ve managed to do so over the last few games, so we’re satisfied as a result”.

“Things are going well. I’m extremely happy that people rate my work highly and it’s a great source of pride to be at this club. As a boy I dreamed about being here and it fills you with satisfaction to be part of Real Madrid history. The hard work has been worth it and this is the path that will take us to greater things.”

With plenty of praise coming his way at the moment, Navas says he has moved on from the transfer deadline day debacle in which he was on the verge of joining Manchester United as Los Blancos ramped up their efforts to sign David de Gea.

He commented: “It was a difficult situation, but it’s over now and I’m living in the present. I’m here, with Real Madrid, the manager has faith in me, I’m enjoying my football and I have to try and reach my full potential. What I speak to Benítez about is between him and me, we’ve always had a good relationship.”
