Goalkeeper coach for Chelsea, Christophe Lollichon gives his opinion on the competition at Paris Saint-Germain between Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas.
Interviewed by the “Parisian”, he thinks that the Italian, elected best player of the last Euro 2020 can take over the position of number one. “I hate it because I think you need a number 1. By doing this, you are putting a knife in the trust contract with your goalkeeper.” The guy is training and he knows the next weekend he’s not going to play. But honestly, in terms of progression and development, I don’t see the point for Donnarumma, at 22, to go into a work-study program. The best way to progress is to compete with 40, 45 or 50 games in the season. If you take that away from a guard, that’s no good. For Navas, it’s a little different, with all due respect to his record. But if the two stay, I think it can only be Donnarumma titular. “
