The technical body of Real Madrid has once again increased its workforce with the
incorporation of Luis Llopis
Goalkeeper trainer Luis Llopis has signed for Real Madrid and will return to the
Santiago Bernabéu Stadium after working in the Spanish capital from 2015 to 2018.
Llopis was now training Real Sociedad’s goalkeepers and left Real Madrid after
Los Blancos decided to appoint Julen Lopetegui and he chose to bring his
own coaching staff.
Llopis is known as one of the best goalkeeper trainers in Spain and is seen as one of
the people responsible for Keylor Navas’ growth and development as an elite
goalkeeper, given that he also worked with the Tico when they were both in Levante.
In Madrid he will work with Thibaut Courtois and Andriy Lunin. Courtois has been in
great form for the last year, so Llopis will likely need to make sure that his training
methods don’t disrupt Courtois’ confidence and momentum. Considering Llopis’
reputation, it’s safe to assume that Courtois will improve his weaknesses and
maximize his potential even more.
