Thibaut Courtois’s “dream comes true’’ as he joins Real MadridThursday, 09 August 2018 19:27
“It’s a childhood dream come true. You can’t imagine how happy I am,’’ declared Thibaut Courtois. “Those who know me, know how hard I worked to get here. Going to the best club in the world is a huge responsibility. I want to thank Real Madrid and all those who made it possible for me to be here, because it wasn’t easy. Throughout my entire career, I have given my best wherever I was. Today, I am a “madridista”, and I aim to be worthy of what that represents. I am very happy to be close again to my children.’’
26-year-old Thibaut Courtois, whose children live in Madrid, had returned from the Russian World Cup with the trophy for the best goal keeper of the competition in his suitcase. Wishing to leave Chelsea, he had not been present in training this week in London.
Courtois began in Genk’s first team in 2009, at the age of 16. Two years later, he left Limbourg after having become Belgian champion. Recruited by Chelsea in 2011, he had been on loan for three seasons at Atletico Madrid, before playing at the Stamford Bridge from 2014.
