Real Madrid finished a tremendous season with a win in the Spanish Championship and the Champions League. One of the heroes of the season in general and the hero of winning the Champions in particular is without a doubt Thibaut Courtois, who provided a huge performance in the final that arranged for his team a 0: 1 victory over Liverpool.

Despite his marvelous season, Courtois was interviewed today (Monday) by the British Sun and claimed: “It is impossible for a goalkeeper to win the Golden Ball, even more so if he plays for the same team with Karim Benzema.”

Courtois continued: “I can go far, but it will be difficult for me to win this title. For me, what matters is the fact that when I got back to the locker room, all my teammates were screaming my name. It is worth more than personal recognition. “

In fact, since 1963, when Lev Yashin won the Golden Ball title, no goalkeeper has won that title, a trend that may well continue this season. The leading candidate to win the title is Benzema, who has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid fans, in their uniforms the Belgian goalkeeper played for seven years and won with the team the Spanish Championship, the Copa del Rey, the Europa League and the European Super Cup, expressed their displeasure at Courtois when they tore up the board with the name of the goalkeeper at Wanda Metropolitano, the team’s home stadium.
