Belgian Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois defended his teammate Eden Hazard on Tuesday, who will not be against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League on Wednesday after suffering from gastroenteritis, ensuring that “we cannot forget or kill him.”
«In the last week he was sick, he has not trained as much. I have known Eden for many years, his dream has always been to play for Real Madrid, and he feels sorry for not getting what he wants, “Courtois said at a press conference.
“I see him training with great enthusiasm, with his head held high, with joy and desire to help the team,” added the Real Madrid goalkeeper.
“It is not easy to recover his level, it will be with training and games, but I am sure he can reach his best level, I am sure he will contribute a lot to this team,” said Courtois.
«I am sure that his day will come because we cannot forget the quality that Eden has. Nowadays we forget very quickly the talent of the players ”, explained the Real Madrid goalkeeper.
“This quality and this talent does not go so fast, we cannot forget him or kill him or think that he is just any player, because he is not,” he concluded. (AFP)
