Thibaut Courtois has definitely seen some better days.
The great Belgian goalkeeper arrived at Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer of 2018 but his venture at the Spanish capital has been all but easy.

Recently, however, in Real Madrid’s Champions League clash against Club Brugge at the Santiago Bernabeu, Courtois was subbed off at half-time due to some discomfort and inability to continue the game.
Even though we had no idea what caused the issue at first, an official statement from the club clarified things and it seems Courtois is suffering from gastroenteritis with dehydration and electrolyte imbalance as opposed to what was initially reported as anxiety issues.
But even though the Belgian is currently unwell and having a hard time in the squad, many Real Madrid fans felt no sympathy and still bashed the goalkeeper mercilessly.
Many of them were saying they had thought the announcement was actually about him being sold and how they had hoped it to be just that.
It seems that even a difficult injury can’t turn the fans around and Courtois remains a heavily criticised figure in the squad.
