Real Madrid ended their LaLiga against Betis at the Santiago Bernabéu. Thibaut Courtois kept a clean sheet in the game and had the following to say: “I’d like to thank the fans for always supporting us. That’s why we’re in the final. I hope we can make them happy on Saturday. The intensity levels dropped a bit, the heat doesn’t help. We wanted to get into our rhythm and not pick up any injuries. We’ve done a lot of fitness work this week for one final push and to be at our best, and that’s why the manager rotated the team”.
“Now we have to rest this weekend and on Monday we have to get back to the intensity levels we need for the final. We’re up for it. You don’t get the chance the play in many finals. Madrid haven’t been in many in recent years, but that doesn’t always happen. Getting to the Champions League final is no mean feat and many teams want to win it".
“His contract is up and I don't know what the club will want to do. He's a legend and I hope that we can win the Champions League together on Saturday.”
“I congratulate him on winning the Zamora Trophy. He's a good friend of mine and I'm delighted for him.”
