Solari leaves interview after Navas question

WATCH: Solari walks out of interview after question about Navas

December 13, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Argentine coach decided to snub a journalist who tried to get his impressions on why Navas had stayed on the bench against CSKA.

Maybe Santiago Solari does not like to explain himself, but his body language lets us imagine that there is something else going on between him and Keylor Navas.

The Costa Rican goalie was not used by Solari during the disappointing 3-0 loss against CSKA on Wednesday evening, prompting a number of questions about why the footballer was snubbed from the lineup, when other players that don't enjoy too much playing time were used. 

ESPN journalist Manu Martin used his final questions to ask about Navas' snub, to which Solari initially replied. When Martin did not get the answer he was looking for, the coach decided to leave.

Have a look at the video with the proper translation.

Santiago Solari (SS): "The team is hurt, but we have to think about Rayo Vallecano."

Manu Martin (MM): "Last question. In a day when some players got their chances, why did Keylor Navas get snubbed?"

SS: "Well, that's my choice to make."

MM: "Is there something wrong with him?"

SS: "Excuse me."

Solari's term as coach has been filled with controversy ever since he chose Thibaut Courtois over Navas. Furthermore, his constant brushes with Isco hint that things inside Real's locker room are not the best since Zinedine Zidane's departure, which also had an effect on Julen Lopetegui's failed stint with the club.
