The physicist of Jesús Navas is still under study. The palatial, world champion in South Africa 2010, continues to be a key player in Sevilla who has just sealed his classification for the Champions League and who is going to fight Atlético de Madrid for third place.
Captain in the Lopetegui team, with a stadium to his name, that of the Seville sports city, and all the records destroyed (victories, games played …) in the Andalusian club, the duende of Los Palacios is close to adding another milestone to his career, since he is the field player who accumulates the most minutes in the entire league championship, according to statistics published by the League itself.
With 3,191 minutes completed this season in the First Division, the surprising thing is that he is about to turn 35, since in a few months, in November, it will be his birthday. Coupled with a new position such as the right-back, his performance has been spectacular, formed with Lucas Ocampos the most fearsome right-handed band in the championship, with constant ups and downs, apart from goal assists.
In this particular classification of minutes accumulated in the First Division, Jesús Navas is followed by Villarreal center back Raúl Albiol, with 3,148 minutes played and Celta striker Iago Aspas, with 3,086. Marc Cucurella and José Campaña also appear on this list with 3,069 and 3,045 respectively. And in sixth place is another incombustible of the matches of the Julen Lopetegui team, Diego Carlos, who has totaled 3,045 minutes so far.
Jesús Navas has only stayed on the bench in one game this season in LaLiga. It was after the confinement in the duel at the Ceramics stadium, where Lopetegui made many changes in his eleven against Villarreal. The palatial would come out on the break being a participant in the improvement of Sevilla in the second half.
