After a hectic period in which Paris Saint-Germain faced a coronavirus outbreak within the team, manager Thomas Tuchel is now beginning to receive good news regarding the health of his players. PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas has recovered from the coronavirus and is now cleared to resume in action with the club, according to a report from RMC Sport.
PSG dearly missed Navas in its last two games as the club lost each fixture. The Costa Rican goalkeeper was ruled out for both contests due to a recent a positive coronavirus test. Now, Navas has been cleared to resume action with PSG and should be a candidate to start against Metz tomorrow.
If Navas is not able to face Metz, PSG will once again have to rely on third-string goalkeeper Marcin Bulka. Sergio Rico would typically earn the start for the club in games where Navas is not able to feature in, but a registration issue will keep the Spanish goalkeeper out of the squad for the fixture. He was not registered with the club for the 2020-2021 Ligue 1 season on August 23, which was when the club’s fixture against Metz was originally scheduled for.
PSG hopes that Navas can return for the contest and provide a top showing in a must-win game.
