“Personally, I have a relationship with him. I was Thibaut’s roommate and we had a good relationship. From my point of view, when he spoke, I think he was wrong. You have to remember where you come from and, for me, he was not successful “, the athletic player has recognized in an interview from the concentration of the Spanish National Team. And it is that the Spanish midfielder shared the pitch with the current white goalkeeper in a total of 131 occasions, during the 3 seasons that Courtois stayed at the Vicente Calderón.
