Courtois: “This is Real Madrid, we want to win everything”

30 Dec 2019

Thibaut Courtois is excited to challenge for trophies in the second half of the season at Real Madrid.

Los Blancos have the chance to win four trophies before the campaign is out, starting with the Supercopa de Espana in January.

“This is Real Madrid; now we have the Supercopa, then the Copa, then LaLiga and the Champions League. Everything,” Courtois told MARCA.

“We want to win trophies and I’m really looking forward to making history at Real Madrid. Now, we have the Supercopa and we’ve already shown against Barcelona that we can beat anyone and play very well.”

The Belgian didn’t hide from a single question in the interview in Miami and spoke for the first time about his relationship with former Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

“In the end, that’s life. You’re closer to some people than others,” he said.

“He was a teammate and there was always a good relationship between us both.

“The fact that he’s no longer around hasn’t helped me at all. I think it’s more that there’s no longer a debate from the outside because from the inside, we were two goalkeepers who were competing well in training, like now with Areola, who is a magnificent goalkeeper.

“The day to day demands on me haven’t changed. But there is less debate from the outside.”

Courtois also revealed that his love for Real Madrid and the Santiago Bernabeu started at a young age.

“I used to love Iker as a kid,” he said.

“I had a family friend who used to go to the Bernabeu a lot and brought back a shirt, I had a Bernabeu banner on my wall.”
