Lopetegui giving no guarantees to ´fighter´ Navas

18 settembre 2018 16:24

Real Madrid goalkeeper Julen Lopetegui refused to say whether Keylor Navas will be handed a first-team return in Wednesday's Champions League opener against Roma.

Navas was Madrid's first choice in each of their consecutive Champions League triumphs but has lost his spot with the European titleholders to close-season signing Thibaut Courtois.

One option for Lopetegui would be to select Navas as his cup goalkeeper – splitting duties in the same manner as Barcelona once did between Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Although he again praised Costa Rica international Navas at his pre-match news conference, the former Spain boss refused to commit to this course of action.

"Navas is training very well," Lopetegui said. "He's doing what we thought he would do and what he's going to do throughout the season – fight and compete.

"I'm not going to say anything about [which goalkeeper will play]. We have fantastic options in goal and whatever decision we make is going to be a good one.

"I'm not going to say who is going to play and who is not going to play."
