At Real Madrid they don’t give credit, nobody understands what’s going on with Courtois

Throughout the history of football there have been, and will be, many players who have not had the recognition they deserve for their great career. we all remember that ballon d’or that today many fans still do not understand how it could end up in the hands of Leo Messi and not in those of Andrés Iniesta; or more recently, and continuing with the same theme, it is still kicking that the Argentine won his seventh Golden Ball to the detriment of Robert Lewandowski.

But not everything is titles. Not all great football stars can feel lucky to have won an award, individually or collectively, throughout their career and not stop being admired for it and praised throughout the sporting world.

Something that the Belgian has not hesitated to ensure that his absence is due to some statements against the body after the match for third and fourth place in the UEFA National League: “They only care about money, we are going to get injured because we are not robots ”, assured the goalkeeper.

The leaders of Real Madrid find it inexplicable how a goalkeeper who performs actions like the one the other day in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, making a save with his foot at the penalty kick taken by Raúl García, is not even taken into account in the nominations for the awards.
