PSG are motivated in their quest to win their first ever Champions League title, according to goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
The Ligue 1 champions have reached the knockout stage in each of the last eight editions of the competition, but have failed to progress past the quarter-finals.
Their series of failures includes the incredible 6-5 aggregate loss to Barcelona in 2017 and their 2019 exit to Manchester United despite being 3-1 up with an hour to play.
Having already progressed past Dortmund to reach the quarter-finals of the 2019-20 Champions League, Navas feels PSG are primed to challenge for the ultimate prize.
“I know [the Champions League is] difficult, but it’s not impossible. So we’re ready to fight in this competition,” Navas told PSG’s official website.
“I know my teammates are super motivated. They work a lot at home because they all know each other the importance of this competition, for the team, the club, the supporters. We know our responsibility.”
“We are going to take a little time to pick up the pace because we are all physically good,” Navas said.
“We, the goalkeepers, have a specific job. But if the physical condition is good, it will help me become a cat on my goal line as soon as possible.
“I run a lot. More than in my whole life. It’s important to maintain our physical condition. So I run every day. Some days a little more than others. Trying to manage it well so that there are no injuries.”
