Keylor Navas (PSG) has just been named the best goalkeeper of the season in Ligue 1 for the 2020-2021 season at the UNFP awards.

Impressive in goal for Paris Saint-Germain. Despite the complicated season of the reigning champions, the Parisian keeper was in competition with Mike Maignan, Anthony Lopes, Steve Mandanda and Benjamin Lecomte for this award.

I am very happy, » he said in an interview with Canal+. I try to be even better every season. In general, I had a very good year and I enjoyed it. I tried to give the best of myself. That’s what makes me very calm. « Navas added: « Mike Maignan is still young and has a lot to learn. He is showing that he is fit; that he works hard and with humility. He has everything to become a rand goalkeeper. »

Certainly; for the first time since 2014; the UNFP trophy for best goalkeeper is won by a Parisian goalkeeper. For me; « Keylor Navas is the number one in the world in the current form »; confided Lionel Charbonnier; 1998 world champion, to Eurosport last April. « He has this ability to sublimate himself. But for the moment, I haven’t seen that in Mike Maignan. Whereas; Keylor Navas; I find him very strong on the line. »

Thus; the 34-year-old goalkeeper beats notably Mike Maignan; winner of the trophy in 2019. Last year, the award was not presented due to the premature end of the season caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Finally. Paris Saint-Germain executive. Keylor Navas feels good in France; and even extended his contract until 2024 last April. « I feel really happy. (…) The club continues to trust me; I thank them. I feel really good at the moment. I try to be as professional as possible. I take care of myself; and I try to eat a balanced diet. That helps me a lot. All this helps me to stay at the top level », he said on the sidelines of his extension. As a reminder. It was the players who voted for his nomination.
