Fernando Morientes has lauded Keylor Navas for the impact he had during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, adding that the Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper should be seen as a Real Madrid legend.


The 33-year-old had a brilliant five-year spell at the Bernabeu, winning one LaLiga title and three Champions League trophies before securing a move to Ligue 1 champions PSG last summer.


And, Morientes, a Los Blancos great himself, had nothing but praise for the Costa Rica shotstopper.


"In the end, for example, at Real Madrid, I tell you that he is a legend," the former Valencia and Liverpool striker told ESPN.

"A player like him who has participated in great moments in Madrid must be classified as legends, without any doubt."


After joining Madrid from Levante in 2014, Navas later became Madrid's main man between the sticks after Iker Casillas left for Portuguese club FC Porto.


The 44-year-old added: "Keylor Navas came as a substitute player for a great goalkeeper in our history as Iker Casillas was.


"Little by little he gained the respect of the entire public, but he was also decisive in great moments in the history of the Bernabeu."
