“I don’t always have to be the protagonist”
Thibaut Courtois celebrated his 150th game with Real Madrid with a victory at the Reale Arena, the club he arrived at in 2018. The Belgian goalkeeper did not receive a shot on goal from Real Sociedad in the 90 minutes largely thanks to the great performance by Militao and Alaba.
“I don’t always have to be the protagonist, it was a very good game on the defense. After the break we have conceded only two goals in five games. We are doing a good job and we know that if we keep a clean sheet, with the quality that we have up, it is almost impossible for us to finish without scoring, “the Belgian goalkeeper told Real Madrid TV after receiving from Florentino Pérez a commemorative shirt of the 150 games.
“It is a difficult field in which it has always been difficult for us to win, but we have fought, worked and knew how to suffer as well,” analyzed Courtois. “In the second half we scored two good goals, one from a player who has not played much and that shows that everyone is committed. That is important,” said the Belgian.
“We had worked tactically, watched videos and did what the coach asked us to do,” he continued. “We have tried to hurt them where it could hurt the most and we did that very well. A very round match for the team, we can be happy for this victory
