Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois talked to Real Madrid TV and shared his thoughts on the team’s return to training and their goals for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
“After almost two months without training, we couldn’t wait to get back to it, be together as a team again here at Valdebebas. It’s different when you have to do it at home, but everyone has trained very well. We did all the coach asked of us and we’re in good shape. In general, everyone is feeling positive,” said the keeper.
Real Madrid were allowed to train in small groups early this week and that meant that Courtois’ teammates could do some shooting against the Belgian goalkeeper.
“Us goalkeepers were lucky because we were able to train with our specific coach last week. This week, back in small groups, at least they can take shots at us. It’s starting to feel like more of a proper training session again,” said a positive-minded Courtois.
Real Madrid are two points behind Barcelona in La Liga table but they will try their very best to win the title in what has been an atypical 2019-2020 season.
“We’re also keen to restart La Liga and we’re going to fight hard to win it,” concluded Courtois.
