Navas shows discomfort over substitute role

Keylor Navas sends message via Instagram moments after being benched

November 7, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Costa Rican goalkeeper was dropped from Real Madrid's lineup for the first time in the UEFA Champions League.

The first complicated decision for Santiago Solari as Real Madrid coach came today, as he had to decide if Keylor Navas or Thibaut Courtois was going to be the starting goalkeeper in the UEFA Champions League. Keylor Navas had been favored by Julen Lopetegui in the first three games of this competition....until today.

The Argentine coach decided to give Courtois the starting nod ahead of the Costa Rican footballer, which sparked controversy among fans and experts. Contrary to his usual behavior, Navas took it to social media to share his views on this decision, hinting that Solari's decision was not what he had expected prior to the start of this game.

Navas' message came moments before Solari's decision was made public. Here's the goalie's reaction along with the much-needed translation.

"Blessed is the man who trusts in me and sets his hopes on me. He will be like the tree planted on the edge of a river, extending his roots to the current, unfearful of a heat wave. Its foliage will always be leafy. In times of drought it will not be tense and it will never fails to bear fruit"
