Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois created some controversy. He targeted Barcelona forward Lionel Messi this time, few days before El-Classico. Things were worse when Barca tweeted mocking Courtois.
The Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois took the internet by storm yesterday. He has stated that the Barcelona star forward Lionel Messi is nothing special. He added that Messi is just like any other player. Courtois started another controversial point that he doesn’t really think about Messi anymore. Although Courtois admitted that he used to have him on his mind during his time as a shot-stopper at Atletico Madrid.
In the next part of the controversy was due to Barca’s tweet mocking Courtois. Actually, Barca wasted no time to give a response against Courtois’ comments about their best player. Barca actually acted in a smarter way to reply to the Belgian. They posted a video of Messi scoring past Courtois several times. Where Messi scored past the Belgian goalkeeper several times with ease.
Courtois actually insulted Messi
Barca is going to battle with Real Madrid in their next match in the league. Before their historical clash, Courtois stated his feelings about the Argentine GOAT in an interview. Where he compared Messi with any other player from Levante or Celta Vigo. This part of the interview was most spicy than the rest.
Messi might be the GOAT
It is clear to the world that Messi is one of the best players of all time. His stats and records are always in his favor. Messi won every possible thing except the World Cup. He has wonderful stats in this season too. Messi played 20 games this season in the league. He scored 18 goals and got 12 assists this season in La Liga.
Courtois is a good goalkeeper too. His stats are also amazing. He played 22 games this season in the league. Where he got 11 clean-sheets. Though he is better than most of the goalkeepers in Europe, still he cannot bring Messi down this way. He actually tried to disturb the mental stability of Messi before the El-Classico.
