Costa Rica Goalkeeper Keylor Navas to Possibly Have Surgery

Costa Rica Sports News – Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas may have to undergo surgery to repair a partial rupture of his Achilles tendon, according to Costa Rica coach Paulo Wanchope.

keylor navas costa rica goalkeeper 1Navas aggravated a recurring tendon problem that has troubled him in recent months during last week’s international friendly against Spain in Leon.

Tests done on the 28-year-old by the Costa Rica medical team have since revealed “a partial rupture of his Achilles tendon in his left foot as well as swelling around the heel.”

That has ruled Navas, who played a key role in helping Costa Rica reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the first time last year, out of next month’s CONCACAF Gold Cup – and could end up with him going under the knife.

“It’s a fact that Keylor will not be able to play at the Gold Cup,” Wanchope said to Costa Rica newspaper La Nacion. “He has two possibilities, to undergo surgery or to find an alternative treatment.

“It’s an injury that has worsened.

“He was able to manage the problem but now it’s more acute and his club doctors need to take a decision.

“It’s a pity.”

Navas is expected to travel to Spain this week to undergo further tests in Madrid.

The keeper joined Real last summer from Levante on a six-year deal but started has just six Primera Division games for the Spanish giants and is a reported target for Atletico Madrid.

Real have been heavily linked with Manchester United number one David de Gea as they seek a long-term replacement for Iker Casillas.

    Injury, umm,(?) Better take that with a grain of salt ..(?) surgery,,umm even more so. Looks as if you’re being had…
    Navas is trying to pull a fast one here. Neither the team, Real Madrid, even less so the player himself are interested in his playing the Gold Cup. (European teams hate having to cede their players for national team friendlies and this kind of tourneys)
    Throughout last season Navas was relegated to a role as substitute goalie now the veteran star goalkeeper, Iker Casillas is leaving the team, a new gaffer has been signed, pre-season time is coming up and he doesn’t want to spoil his chances at gaining a starting place in the squad by missing it, so rather conveniently: Lo and behold the timely injury,,, the prospect of surgery added to make it sound even more dramatic. But pay no heed, very likely it is a sham…So just wait and see, he’ll likely recover, as if by magic and will certainly play those pre-season friendlies.
    By the way, if you don’t believe it I’m giving 2 to 1 odds case you wanna bet.
