Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois talked to the Belgian national TV channel and shared his thoughts about the current situation in La Liga. Clubs will return to training this week, with Madrid players undergoing tests for Coronavirus on Wednesday. The competition is expected to restart in one month, but Courtois still talked about the possibility of La Liga cancelling the 2019-2020 season.

We are two points behind Barcelona, so it’s still possible we can be champions. It would be unfortunate if the season were cancelled. If they decide to stop the competition and Barcelona are named champions, I wouldn’t find it completely right. They drew once against us and lost once, so we showed them that we’re a better team. We’re two points behind them, but I wouldn’t agree with that,” said Courtois.

It looks like Madrid will have a chance to compete for the title until the very end as long as the whole process goes as expected. Courtois wants to get on the field and do his job.

“We have to be 100% sure before we play again, because you can be infected without carrying symptoms. You have to be careful who you come into contact with. What happens when there’s a player infected on another team? But of course I’d love to finish the season,” concluded the goalkeeper.

Courtois was having a phenomenal season for Real Madrid and was one of the main reasons why the team was still fighting for the title. His return to form will be a crucial aspect if Madrid want to be successful this season.
