PSG / « The club will make choices »: Gianluigi Donnarumma foresees the end of the alternation with Keylor Navas

Both are on the same wavelength. After Keylor Navas, Gianluigi Donnarumma also indicated that he no longer wanted an alternation with the Costa Rican goalkeeper in the PSG cage next season. « I think it will surely not happen like that, because I think the club will make choices« said the 23-year-old Italian goalkeeper, crowned European champion with his selection last season.

Navas had already spoken on the subject after the victory of PSG in Angers (0-3) on April 21. « JI have a very good relationship with ‘Gigio’, I want to play all the matches, said the former Real Madrid goalkeeper, 35, who arrived at PSG in 2019, at the microphone of Canal +.

Parisian coach Mauricio Pochettino refused to establish a clear hierarchy between two goalkeepers who are among the best in the world.
