‘I want to write my story here too,’ Navas says of PSG
Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas debuted in the Champions League with Paris SG on Wednesday with a 3-0 victory against Real Madrid, the club with which he won three of the European tournament titles.
After the game, Navas showed he is still hungry for trophies.
“I want to write my story here too,” the Tico goalkeeper said.
Navas was “happy” with his Champions League debut with the PSG.
“Defensively, we played a very good game, and my teammates went ahead of each rival’s shot,” he said.
Asked by journalists in the post-game mixed zone about his reunion with his recent colleagues, Navas said: “It’s nice to see that when everyone arrived, they gave me hugs and were glad to see me. That means we shared very nice moments together.”
But Navas, who won three Champions Leagues with Real Madrid, admitted that “it was weird when we went out to the tunnel before entering the field, seeing them there and knowing that they were now on the other side.”
“I appreciate them a lot because they have been an important part of my life, but on the pitch, everyone defends their own, and that is what I will always do,” he added.
Questioned if he held a grudge against his departure from “Los Blancos,” Navas denied any bad relationship with his former club.
“I have no resentment with anyone; things happened that way because God wanted it that way,” he said.
And about his future in Paris, Navas wanted to send a message of ambition: “I want to write my story here as well as I did before.”
