PSG: "Keylor and I are united", Donnarumma evokes competition with Navas


Subject to the principle of competition and alternation as PSG goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas live very well the

Can we simultaneously have two world-class goalkeepers in our workforce, without putting obstacles in the way?

This was the question that tormented Paris Saint-Germain at the start of the season, a question which, over the months and consistent performances, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas have apparently put an end to.

Just crowned with the Yachine Trophy, rewarding the best goalkeeper in the world over the past calendar year, the Italian poured out his thoughts on the competition for the post with the Costa Rican, 12 years his senior, a small month after admitting to having " sometimes it hurts to be on the bench ”.

To hear Donnarumma this time, everything is going well in the best of all possible worlds in Paris.

"There is not the slightest conflict"

“It's been a long time since PSG followed me. It was almost written for me to come to Paris. I had no hesitation, ”he told France Football, before confirming that his relationship is very healthy with Navas. “With Keylor, I have an excellent relationship, there is not the slightest conflict,” he continues. It happens that people speak indiscriminately, start to imagine complicated situations. It can not be helped. But this is by no means the reality. We are both friends and everything is going very well between us. Keylor and I are united, like the entire locker room. You know, we are two very quiet and respectful boys. "

“Afterwards, of course at PSG, I find myself in a new situation for me, but I live it very well.

It helps me to mature, ”referring to the principle of alternation between the two goalkeepers (2 matches each, generally) set up by Mauricio Pochettino.

An established switch, whether in Ligue 1 or in the Champions League, that the two men live in good harmony.

And that does not force the Argentine coach to any choice between the recent winner of the Euro with Squadra Azzura, and the three C1 goalkeeper with Real Madrid.

But until when ?
