Courtois, with discomfort in the psoas, returns to Madrid

The meta abandons the focus of his selection due to a minor mishap in the psoas. With Lunin positive in COVID-19, the Belgian is available for Cádiz.


Thibaut Courtois (28 years old) has left the Belgian concentration camp due to muscular discomfort. It is only a minor problem in the psoas, but both he and Madrid and Roberto Martínez have preferred not to take risks and that he is in Madrid recovering and resting. He is therefore expected to play against Cádiz on October 18.

It is news, although somewhat worrisome at first, reassuring at second, for Zidane, since Lunin is not available. The Ukrainian goalkeeper tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday and, pending the results of a second test, he has to quarantine and will not be able to play.

Courtois traveled to Belgium already with some discomfort in the area. There, as is usual with injuries and hits, he had been summoned by Roberto Martínez. For the coach it is very important, given the distance between the selection windows, to see their internationals and to keep in touch with each other. When carrying out the pertinent tests and observing the injury, it was decided not to risk and the madridista has returned.

Something similar happened in the September break. So, in the middle of Madrid's preseason, Courtois traveled to Tubize to do the reverse a few days later. He had agreed with Martínez that they would proceed like this so that the goalkeeper could prepare with Zidane and his teammates in Valdebebas.
