Thibaut Courtois is considered one of the best goalkeepers today and his performances in recent years back him up. Now, the Belgian analyzed who is for him the best in his position in all history and reflected on what place he occupies.
“He It is a compliment when they say it to you, but I have lived through the best and the worst. Football is moments. And, above all, in goal. There is hardly any goalkeeper like him. We all have our qualities. I think there are some who are at the top level, where I also consider myself, obviously”, explained Real Madrid’s 1.
Me siento un privilegiado por poder formar parte de la historia del mejor Club del mundo. Feliz 120 cumpleaños @realmadrid 🤍por todo lo vivido y por lo que vamos a vivir! #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/PCNTPaKWEZ

And then he added: “Then there may be one who is in a better moment or a worse moment, but he does not say that he plays worse or better. I think it’s hard to say: ‘I’m the best’. Obviously, you have to think about it, play with confidence. Because when you don’t play with confidence, as a goalkeeper, you make mistakes. You don’t go out the same, you don’t stop the same. As a goalkeeper if you are mentally very good, very strong, very focused and with a lot of confidence, you play better”.
In fact, the place that Courtois occupies is not easy at all, since Real Madrid is characterized by having always had the best goalkeepers in history.
Who is para-Courtois the best goalkeeper in history?
Courtois, 29, had said that he grew up watching Iker Casillas and has witnessed the great achievements of Manuel Neuer in recent years.
Even so, he stayed with the Italian Gianluigi Buffón, who is still in force at Parma, in the Italian Serie B. Not only for technical conditions, but also for achievements and history.
