Real Madrid: Thibaut Courtois was very close to a return


By: Manu Tournoux

Earthquake in Madrid. Absent since the start of the season due to a ruptured cruciate ligament, Thibaut Courtois suffered another terrible injury this Tuesday in training. Leaving training in tears, the Belgian goalkeeper was diagnosed with an internal tear in the meniscus in his right knee. A new hard blow which should force him into a white season while he hoped to return to competition in the coming weeks. Indeed, this is what he had suggested a few days earlier in an interview given to Elite Sportthe sponsor of his gloves.

I'm about to come backCourtois then confessed. I'm already doing almost complete goalkeeper drills. Now I started taking photos with the team, which is now more uncertain and little by little I am getting more involved in the work of the group… but I think there is still a month and a bit left for be able to play.» From now on, the 31-year-old goalkeeper will have to work even harder to get back on his feet quickly.
