Courtois makes Real Madrid forget about Keylor Navas

13 Jul 2020

Thibaut Courtois has cemented his place as Real Madrid‘s No.1.

The 28-year-old had struggled to win over some of Los Blancos‘ supporters following his move from Chelsea in 2018, but he’s proved his worth under Zinedine Zidane this season.

Courtois‘ form this campaign has been a key part of Real Madrid‘s title push and has made the club forget about the loss of Keylor Navas.

The Costa Rican’s move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer didn’t please a section of the Real Madrid support following Courtois‘ difficult first year at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Florentino Perez and Zidane‘s gamble has paid off.

In LaLiga Santander this season, Courtois has conceded just 18 goals and is leading the race for the Zamora Trophy ahead of Atletico Madrid‘s Jan Oblak.

The Belgian international has kept five cleans sheets in a row, with the latest one coming on Friday night against Alaves.
