The return of Keylor Navas

The return of Keylor Navas


Keylor Navas was one of the key players from last season. The the Costa Rican goalkeeper had a calmer summer than the one he had last year. Maybe we can see his return next week against Osasuna in the Santiago Bernabéu. Last summer Keylor had a foot in the Premier Leaugue exactly in Manchester United, and Real Madrid was intereseted in the Spanish goalkeeper, David de Gea. Finally the operation was not carried out and de Gea stayed in Manchester. There was no option so Keylor Navas didn´t go to Manchester and stayed in Real Madrid. With the departure of Iker Casillas, Keylor was the keeper that started the season.

Nobody expected that Keylor was going to be the best player of the squad the first part of the last season. With his saves he could mantain Real Madrid in the top of the table. There was a lot of problems in the defense but Keylor Navas appeared to save Los Blancos from several defeats.

Last year he played his better season as a professional. When the Champions League finished he made a medical test and the doctors diagnosed that he had injury in his left foot. This injury did´nt allow Keylor play the American Cup with Costa Rica being the star of the squad.

He has spent all the summer recovering his injury and it´s possible to see Keylor soon in the field. Now Kiko Casilla is the goalkkeper of Real Madrid but many supporters thinks that when Keylor recovers from the injury he will be the keeper of the starting 11. Keylor played last year 34 matches in league and 11 in Champions League.

Kiko Casilla is playing very well but everyone remembers how important Keylor was for Real Madrid. The Spaniard keeper is replacing very good Keylor but he has not reached the level of the Costa Rican last year.

We´re exicted to see Keylor Navas again in the Santiago Bernabéu. We hope Kiko Casilla plays more matches than last year because Real Madrid was eliminated of La Copa del Rey on the first round against Cádiz because of an improper lineup.
