In the Team of Real Madrid, there is currently some construction sites. Many prominent players such as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Marcelo, Casemiro, or Gareth Bale are miles away from their best form. This was also the case of the 1:2-defeat in Valencia, the not to be overlooked the first since the return of Zinedine Zidane as a coach.
recently, a different question provides a voltage. Who is Goalie number 1 is? Against Valencia, the three-times Champions League winner Keylor Navas kept the gate. In the previous week against Huesca Zidane's son Luca stood between the posts. The nominal number 1, Thibaut Courtois, is not currently due to a tendinitis in his right thigh.
The Situation is tricky indeed. Under coach Julen Lopetegui, with the Real season started, it was Courtois is the first choice. So it was also, as Lopetegui was replaced by Santiago Solari. Only Zidane Navas moved back to the number 1 – at least temporarily.
Navas, who had shown in 2014 with Costa Rica a great world Cup, was in spite of the great successes never uncontroversial in Madrid. The Belgian Courtois came with the award as the best goalkeeper of the world Cup in 2018, but the Übergoalie he was at Real, never. The talented Luca Zidane, could provide additional fuel – not least because he is the son of the Coach.
No Goalie debate
"The next season will be no debate about the goalkeepers," was Zinedine Zidane recently quote. "At the Moment, I have three good in the squad. What next season, we will see. For the future, it will be pretty clear."
With this statement, Zidane leaves some. He informed the club's leadership, what he wanted. Perhaps Zidane speculate with one or the other outlet. Need Navas to go? Is Courtois, who joined this season after Madrid granted the approval for a Club? "At the end of the season the decisions will be made public," said the Real coach.
For Courtois, it is likely to be several interested Clubs, such as Paris Saint-Germain. The contract of the 26-year-old Belgian will run until 2024.
Even Navas seems to be his thoughts. The Spanish newspaper "Marca", he said: "If the coach says that I have to go, then I'm going to do that. However, I have a contract and my present is Madrid." It was not an easy time, added the 32-year-old goalkeeper, "but we need to learn from the mistakes."
Navas wants to stay in Madrid. The question is whether he would do this as number 2, should Courtois will remain number 1. So is suspect The number 1 is identified between Courtois and Navas. The "loser" has to leave the club. The number 2 Luca Zidane. (rom)
