The mess in Belgium continues and more and more “scum” continues to be published about the national team players. After the bad game against Morocco and the 2:0 loss, there were reports of a big division in the dressing room and even a physical confrontation between Eden Hazard, Kevin De Braun and Jan Vertonghen, but the local media revealed the reason for the Pandora’s box between some of the players, and they went very far back.
The Belgian ‘RTL’ claimed that Kevin de Braune and Thibaut Courtois have not spoken to each other at all for years. Nine to be exact. It started in 2013, when the midfielder’s ex-partner, Caroline Linnen, flew to Madrid to meet with then Atlético goalkeeper Courtois. The two continued to meet, started going out and from that moment the bad atmosphere between the two players did not stop.
The girl went out with the two players at the same time without the knowledge of de Brauna, who has known Courtois from a very young age (they met in Chelsea). From the moment that the Manchester City star found out about the relationship between the goalkeeper and Linan, he did not communicate with the goalkeeper, he sees him as a traitor and is very hurt by him.
Almost a decade of tension has been between two of Belgium’s leading players and the world’s leading. In Belgium they are trying to hide the problems, but right now the Red Devils are in real danger of being kicked out of the World Cup, when they will be playing for their lives against Croatia.
