Seems Keylor Navas has no plans of quitting the Santiago Bernabau anytime soon, at least not unless the head coach Zinedine Zidane says so.
Navas was demoted to second goal keeper, after the arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea. However, Zinedine Zidane had revealed he would be needing all resources on deck to help Madrid back to the summit of the competition next season, and Navas has now revealed leaving Madrid is only a valid option if Zinedine Zidane wants it to be.
Speaking about his future after Wednesday’s loss, Navas told reporters: “If the coach tells me to go, that’s what I’m going to do. But I have a contract and my present is at Real Madrid.”
“I will always try to give my best and convince the coach that I should play,” he added. “I have a contract and I want to be here, but let’s see what happens. Let’s focus on finishing the season well.
“We have to, for the honour of the badge, go out and win the remaining [eight] matches.”
Real Madrid are vying for nothing at the moment, bar a Champions League qualification place in next season’s campaign and Navas is hopeful the Los Blancos would learn from their mistakes.
“It’s a difficult time,” He said. “It’s been a year that has not gone as we had hoped [prior to the season starting] but we must face up to it.
“We must face this moment and hopefully that will help us to learn from all the mistakes we have made this year so that we can enjoy what this club deserves in the next few years.”
