Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has said he was angry because Eden Hazard kept giving the ball away with backheels in Saturday’s 3-2 victory vs Levante.
Eden finally had his Madrid debut when he came off the bench in the 2nd half at the Santiago Bernabeu, as the Spanish giant led 3-1.
He made an impact but failed to help his club build on their advantage as Levante managed to give them a scare.
Courtois has now said even if he was happy to see Hazard play, he has to reduce the unnecessary backheels.
His words, “Eden showed what he can do in the move where we nearly scored: relaxed on the ball, able to set people up,”
“I got a bit angry at him a couple of times, because he tried to back heel it and gave it away. But in those moments that he has, he can create a lot of danger.”
“Vinicius had a good game today, too, let’s see if he can get a goal.”
“At the break we were expecting to finish the game with a clean sheet,”
“Sometimes when the first half goes so well you need to maintain the same dynamic, but we got worse as it went it on. In the last 15 minutes we had to hold on for the win, we couldn’t drop any more points here.
“If we had followed on that trajectory it was a match we should win 5-0 or 6-0, with all due respect.
