The campaign had already started and was late in preparation. But above all, Keylor was still there, “recalls the father.”

For Thierry, the 'Tico' did not behave appropriately with his son: “He had to wait two or three games to start. This did not facilitate their integration because Keylor was always there, there was an internal competitiveness difficult to live. Also external with journalists, who were in favor of Keylor. Once he went to PSG, everything eased. “

In addition, the father of the Madrid goalkeeper remembers Petr Cech's companionship compared to Navas: “Petr received it very well. He was the first who came to receive him in his first training session, he always gave him advice and helped him to integrate. He was a great companion she could always count on. The same could not be said in the case of Keylor. Once he left, things got easier. “
