Pressure and poor form got an effect on the psyche of Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. Club doctors diagnosed his anxiety disorder. This was the main reason why he is replaced in halftime against Club Brugge in the Champions League.
The Belgian goalkeeper who arrived from Chelsea last summer is struggling with form and criticisms have a lot of effect on him. After the last game when in the first half he received two goals, he entered the locker room and felt dizzy. With all that he had problems with indigestion. After this situation, Zinedine Zidane took another goalkeeper for the second half.
What happened to Courtois?
These symptoms were later linked to anxiety. According to Courtois, a father came to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, who urgently transported him to the hospital, where he underwent additional searches.
Later they found out that he lost three pounds in just a few hours as a result of stress and illness. Before some time Courtois said that if you want to be Real’s goalkeeper, you have to accept the pressure.
After they found out all about his gastric problems, Courtois was put under the nutritionist’s belt. This should help him to improve his physical condition. Only like that, he shouldn’t have similar problems in the future.
Courtois didn’t train with the squad in the last couple of days. The club announced on its official website that he is working independently. He will not play in the next game against Granada.
In 58 games he received 81 goals, this is one big reason for his lack of confidence. For Zidane, he is the best goalkeeper. We can remember that he was the best goalkeeper on the Russian Mundial in 2018.
Because of him, Zidane released Keylor Navas to PSG. Unfortunately, Courtois sunk completely due to the strong criticism in recent months. Many fans accuse him of not being on the same level as in Chelsea or in the Belgian national team.
What will happen in the future with Courtois depends only on him? But right now he wasn’t on a great level. We will follow in the future this situation, on Soccer10 you will find all the sports news.
