Fernando Morientes: At Real Madrid, Keylor Navas regarded a legend

Real Madrid hero Fernando Morientes has paid tribute to Keylor Navas.

The Costa Rica captain left Real last summer for PSG.

Morientes told ESPN: "At Real Madrid, I can tell you that he is a legend.

"A player like him, who has contributed to so many great moments for Madrid, must be considered a legend, without a doubt. He arrived as a replacement for one of the greatest goalkeepers in our history, Iker Casillas.

"Little by little, he won the respect of all the public, and was decisive in major moments in the history of the Bernabéu."
