Thibaut Courtois won the Yashin trophy on Monday, being named the best goalkeeper of the 2021/22 season.
Courtois, who has already recovered from his injury and is back in training with Real Madrid, has shown in an interview with the French media the importance of goalkeepers in today’s football.
“Last year, if we won the Champions League, it was not only thanks to Vinicius, Valverde, Benzema or Rodrygo. It was also thanks to Courtois”
The goalkeeper in a team is more important than you think, there is a lot of pressure”, said Courtois.
The Belgian was one of the most deserving in most of the matches of the elimination phase, when Real Madrid managed to defeat opponents such as PSG, Chelsea, Man City and finally Liverpool.
