When Chelsea fans deliberately provoked and mocked, goalkeeper Courtois responded by kissing the Real Madrid logo.
Courtois kisses the Real logo in front of Chelsea fans
During the trip to Stamford Bridge, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had an impressive performance. The Belgian goalkeeper’s excellent saves helped Real stand firm against the host’s attack, before Real turned the situation around in the second half.
Besides the impressive flying phase, Courtois is also mentioned a lot thanks to the provocation of the home fans. In the first half, when Courtois walked towards the stands, a home fan grabbed the ball and threw it right in front of the Belgian goalkeeper. In response, Courtois just smiled and returned to the wooden frame.
Then, when the first half ended, Courtois walked over to the home fans’ stands and kissed the Real Madrid logo on the chest of his shirt. More importantly, Courtois provoked Chelsea fans just minutes after the goalkeeper blocked Cucurella’s close-range kick, which also prevented Chelsea’s opening goal.
Courtois’ actions made Chelsea fans very angry. The Belgian goalkeeper is unpopular with Chelsea fans because of his past statements and recent provocative actions that can make Courtois even more hated.
After the match, Courtois did not forget to share the joy of winning on his personal Twitter. “A great game and to be in the semi-finals. We are Real Madrid, we all know what we want right now.”
Coach Carlo Ancelotti expressed satisfaction and admiration for what Courtois showed against Chelsea. He believes that the goalkeeper born in 1992 has made the turning point of the game and is not afraid to call Courtois the best goalkeeper in the world at the moment.
