On the 11th (hereinafter Korean time), Courtois posted a picture taken with his left leg in a cast on social network service (SNS). He recently injured himself in training and is preparing for surgery. “I never expect to go through something like this, but now I have to accept it and overcome it,” he said. “I have to do everything to recover from my injury. I will come back stronger.”
He also did not forget to thank the fans who are very worried about his unexpected injury. Courtois wrote, “I am grateful to everyone who gives me energy, affection and encouragement,” adding, “The fans’ support motivates me to recover as quickly as possible.”
Real Madrid teammates also sincerely wished Courtois a speedy recovery. Captain Nacho Fernandez sent a message saying, “Courtois cheer up. We will wait for you”, while Daniel Carvajal said, “(Courtois’ injury) is very regrettable. We will be with him every step of the way to his recovery.” “I’m sure you’ll overcome it well. You’re not alone. Be strong.”
Real Madrid are in an emergency due to an injury to their main goalkeeper, Courtois. The current first-team squad goalkeeper positions include Courtois and Andriy Lunin. Lunin played as the main goalkeeper for Ukraine at the 2019 FIFA Under-19 World Cup, winning the championship and winning the Golden Glove.
As Courtois’ injury gap is expected to last for about six months, the possibility of signing David de Gea has risen again. ‘Sky Sports’ pointed out on the 10th, “Real Madrid have started contact with De Gea to erase the void of Courtois knee injury.” Real Madrid opens the 2023-2024 season with an away game against Athletic Bilbao on the 13th.
