Pochettino clarifies Keylor Navas’ comments on Donnarumma

Gianluigi Donnarumma Nations League

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino confirms that the management of goalkeepers will change next season and clarifies Keylor Navas’ comments on Gigio Donnarumma.

Navas said on Thursday night that he no longer wanted to share the starting spot with Donnarumma in 2022-23, suggesting that either he or Gigio would leave in the summer. Pochettino also said he would make different decisions next season, hinting that he would no longer rotate his two goalkeepers in 2022-23.

Donnarumma or Navas to leave PSG in the summer

The former Tottenham coach was asked to comment on Keylor’s quotes during a press conference today.

“I spoke after the game as well. Keylor explained his feelings about the future and not about what happened in the past,” said Pochettino.

“I think he explained himself very well. The most important thing is that we achieve our goals and finish the year in the best way we can.

Conte could solve Donnarumma’s dilemma at PSG

“We will write the future in different circumstances, taking into account the experience of what happened this season.

“That goes for Keylor Navas and many other players. I spoke with Keylor today, not about this, but about other things that will remain private.”

Donnarumma has played 22 games at PSG this season, one less than his teammate. The 23-year-old sees his contract expire in June 2026 and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, PSG could decide to send him on loan in the summer if Pochettino stays.

The scenario will change if the Argentinean coach leaves the club and especially if Antonio Conte, one of the leading candidates for the PSG job, moves to Paris in the summer.

  1. Totally agree Peter. Yet there are many clown pundits, including the ESPN ones that think this guy is up there with more credentialed managers out there.
