At the end of the PSG-Bayern match (0-1), counting for the quarter-finals second leg of the Champions League, a member of the German staff questioned Keylor Navas. He seems to have criticized the Costa Rican goalkeeper for faking and saving time in added time, as the Bavarian club pushed.
It is an image that went somewhat unnoticed (to be seen from 1’08 “in the video above). After the final whistle sealing the qualification of Paris Saint-Germain for the semi-finals of the Ligue des champions, Tuesday evening, a member of the staff of Bayern Munich went to see Keylor Navas for an explanation, while all the Parisian players showed their happiness on the lawn of the Parc des Princes.

The man in question is obviously Toni Tapalović, the goalkeeper coach. It seems he went to Keylor Navas to blame him for faking an injury in added time.
Because about 1 minute and 30 seconds from the end of the match, the Costa Rican goalkeeper remained on the ground after the very poor choice of Leroy Sané in the box. This prompted the referee to inquire about his condition. The game did not finally resume until after a minute of time-out, and the end of the match was whistled 30 seconds later.
“This is football”
Arrested while he was in the arms of Angel Di Maria, Keylor Navas then spoke with the Bavarian staff member. The exchange lasts about twenty seconds and is not fully audible, due to the post-match music playing in the stadium. But we can still hear the experienced Parisian goalkeeper throwing at his interlocutor: “It’s football, isn’t it?” But the German preparer was not of this opinion, considering that it was “too much”.
