He is undoubtedly one of the best recruits of the QSI era. Arrived at PSG in September 2019 from Real Madrid, Keylor Navas shines as much by his calm as by his performances. The Parisian leaders had at the time spent 15 million euros to secure his services. A trifle in view of its performance and efficiency.

Recently, he has especially distinguished himself in the Champions League with an XXL performance in the knockout stages of the Champions League against FC Barcelona (1-1). The experienced Costa Rican doorman (34) had multiplied the parries and pushed back a penalty from Lionel Messi as a bonus.

Does he work that out in training? “Not too much”, according to his teammate Pablo Sarabia, who gave an interview to Canal + before the shock of the 31st day of Ligue 1 between Paris and Lille, scheduled for Saturday (5pm) at the Parc des Princes.

In an interview given at the end of March to the PSG channel, Navas had tried to explain the way in which he approaches a face-to-face penalty: “When I’m in this situation, I try to concentrate. hope God will give me the peace and calm I need to make the right decision. And I tell myself that I will stop this penalty. Often times I fail, a lot of players are very skillful, and he shoots well. But if I have the slightest chance of stopping it, I will do everything to seize this opportunity. Thank God I have done it a few times already. I am not trying to intimidate the opponent, it is a moment of tension for everyone, you just have to prepare and understand the situation. And give your maximum. “
