Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois expressed his wish to win the Champions League after the end of the Spanish League competitions against Real Betis.
Real ended the tournament with a 0-0 draw with Betis, yesterday, Friday, to become the next stop against Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 28.
Courtois went out to talk about this upcoming meeting, and also sent a message to Moroccan Yassine Bono, the Seville goalkeeper.
What did Courtois say after the last appearance in the Spanish League?
“I would like to thank the fans for our constant support, and they are the reason for our presence in the Champions League final, and we hope to make them happy on Saturday,” the Belgian international said in statements carried by Real’s official website.
He added, “Our level has decreased recently and the heat is not helping, we wanted to maintain our rhythm without getting injured, and currently we are keen to do more physical training to enter the final in the best possible condition.”
He continued, “Now we have to rest this week before returning to training again, to get the highest degree of intensity we need for the final.”
He explained, “We are ready for this confrontation. Reaching the Champions League final is not easy and does not happen often, and Real Madrid has not had the opportunity to play in many finals recently, so we are excited about this meeting.”
What message did Courtois send to Bono?
In a separate context, Courtois sent a message to Moroccan Yassine Bounou, the Seville goalkeeper, after receiving the Zamora Golden Glove award in the Spanish League.
This comes after he conceded only 24 nets, while he kept a clean sheet in 13 out of 31 matches he played with the Andalusian team this season.
Courtois said of Bono: “I congratulate him on winning the Zamora Cup, he is a good friend of mine and I am happy for him.”
