The Real Madrid goalkeeper referred to the Merengue season after being La Liga champion. “I had complete confidence,” he remarked.
The bow of Real Madrid was under criticism before the arrival of Thibaut Courtois in 2018. However, time helped the Belgian to find his best facet and help the consecration of The league during this Thursday, in the absence of a day to close the 2019/20 course.
At the end of Zinedine Zidane’s team’s 2-1 victory over Villarreal, the goalkeeper spoke to the media and, in addition to analyzing the match, appreciated the performance of his teammates during the season to take the local title.
“With the 2-0 we were fine, but we had a bit of a lack of concentration. We were pressured until the last minute and an action occurred with my double stop,” the goalkeeper told the media.
On the level of the squad, the white player said: “Back from confinement after two months stopped and win ten games, I trusted my team that we could win.”
And he remembered his sayings when sentencing that Barcelona should not stay with the championship in advance. “More than one fell from Catalonia, which had to shut me up, and my team showed that we have done so. I had full confidence in them,” he said.
Courtois’ presence during the campaign was important in the Merengue to lift the domestic trophy. And it is that the goalkeeper was present in 34 games, in which he reached 76 saves, which contributed to Madrid having just three defeats throughout the championship.
