Keylor Navas was born in Costa Rica. His life began in a certain precariousness, surrounded by a loving family who have always supported him on his path to professional football. And the XNUMX-year-old finally became the current Real Madrid goalkeeper, acclaimed by commentators. His particuliarity ? He is christian and even prays with his wife when he's unsure whether to stay at Real or leave for Manchester United!

“God has a purpose for each person. I remember that day well. Before everyone started I prayed with my wife and we told God that if he wanted me to go I would go but if he wanted me to stay I was happy to stay. "

Every Thursday evening he attends a Bible group because as he says, "football is a blessing from God, but not the most important thing in my life".

“Since I have accepted Christ into my heart, my main goal has been to attain eternal life and to be able to be with him […] Christ gives me wisdom, a peaceful mind and a strong heart to fight in difficult times. , and in order not to go mad, keep your feet on the ground and be humble in times of blessing and happiness. "
