KEYLOR NAVAS AT AWKWAARD CROSSROADS
Many humans often times drift into the dream of their being in a parallel universe imagining themselves leading the life they always hoped for, a life free from ugly struggles.
KeylorNavas, first-choice goalkeeper of the most successful European club in the modern era, must be left wondering just how and why in spiteof his achievement, he continues to be overlooked and regarded as lesser than the very people he forms a grand part with.
Even Florentino Perez and the club chiefs all have a quiet reservation and assessment of the Costa Rican. The fans are not left out either. For all the talk of their ever demanding stand of loyalty from players to the greater gains of their baby club, better players in whatever position that is perceived as weak on the squad will always catch their fancy.
It is like a spoilt child who keeps going for a better chocolate from store to store just because his dad could afford it. And yes the coach Zinedine Zidane, no matter how good he has been playing his diplomatic games – and boy has he done a good job – will be open to having a player that will make his worker easier anytime any day.
So there you haveKeylorNavas who came into the fore of Los Blancos on the back of an impressive individual performance at the World Cup in 2014.
After helping the Madrid giants weather the storm set off by former coach Jose Mourinho and in the process, help them win a La Liga trophy, one Club World Cup and two Champions League title, confirming him a true Galactico seems hard to do. Instead his future at the Santiago Bernabeu lies far away in the city of Manchester, England in the hands of a certain David de Gea.
How Navas would love a universe void of the Spaniard.
