A Real Madrid fan during his youth, the Limburg goalkeeper made his dream come true by joining Casa Blanca after several seasons at Atletico and Chelsea.
In an interview with Chat Laatst Niggs, Thibault Courtois was asked about his life in Madrid and his future. "I'm happy here, and when I come back to Belgium for a week in the summer, I soon miss the city."
He intends to finish his career there. "But I don't know if it will be in seven or eight years," he smiled. "It would be ten years from now, so my kids would be 14 and 12. What would I do with them in Limburg?"
No return to Genk to complete the loop? "Yes, but only a year later, do I still feel Belgian?" "Yes, I want to go back and be proud of my roots, but my life is in Madrid," he says. .
