Thibaut Courtois made an absolute howler for Real Madrid last night. Thankfully for the big-nosed Belgian, VAR came to his rescue.
If you aren’t a frequent reader of our site, we are not too keen on Thibaut. He treated our great club with complete disrespect, after we ousted a club legend in order to accommodate him. Hindsight is 20/20, but it’s safe to say that it wasn’t worth it.
Courtois went AWOL rather than telling Maurizio Sarri his intentions face-to-face. That says a lot about the man – he’s a coward. Since leaving Chelsea, he’s done nothing but talk absolute bollocks in the press. The bridge has been burned, not that we care.
His reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in the world is a complete myth. His flaws have been exposed ever since he moved to Madrid, as they were once again during his side’s 2-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League yesterday evening.
Courtois failed to keep hold of a header which went straight at him, instead allowing Ajax to head the ball into the back of his net. The referee later disallowed the goal with the help of VAR, but not before the keeper was left red-faced. Have a look at this.
Disallowed goal or not, how do people expect me to just never talk about Courtois again? I mean cmon… pic.twitter.com/mgJYBgB511
