The former Chelsea goalkeeper was the man of the match for Real Madrid in the Champions League final. Thibaut Courtois was simply unbelievable in the final and the difference between Liverpool and Real Madrid. After the game he couldn’t help but hit back at some of his critics.
"Today I needed to win a final for my career, for all the hard work, to put some respect on my name, because I don't think I get enough respect. Especially in England." 🤐

‘Yesterday in the press conference I said that when Madrid plays finals they win. I was on the good side of history.
‘I saw a lot of tweets coming my way that I would get humbled today it was the other way round.
‘Today I needed to win a final for my career, for all the hard work to put respect on my name as I don’t think I get enough respect, especially in England. I saw a lot of criticism even after a great season.
‘I am really proud of the team. We stuck to it and when I needed to be there I was there for the team.
‘We beat some the best clubs of the world. City and Liverpool were unbelievable this season. They fought to the end in the Premier League, Liverpool won two cups and they were really strong.
‘We played a great game today. We had one chance and scored it.’
