Keylor Navas is nearing the end of his prime days as a goalkeeper, although his performances for Paris Saint-Germain this past season say otherwise. The Costa Rican goalkeeper shined for PSG in all competitions, whether it was the clutch saves in the UEFA Champions League or the memorable penalty save against Lille OSC in the Coupe de France tournament.
The 34-year-old goalkeeper does not see retirement coming anytime soon, especially considering that he recently signed off on a multi-year contract extension deal with the club. However, he is already looking ahead to what his post-playing days may look like.
“I want to play as long as possible because I love football,” Navas said. “I plan to play as long as possible, but I know the end is near. This is why I am preparing for my life after football.
“I am working on a master’s degree in sports management.”
Several former PSG players have returned to the club following retirement in some sort of an official capacity, which includes the likes of current sporting director Leonardo. Navas could very well follow the same path after he decides to hang up his boots.
