NEWS STORY. 17/10/2022

"I’m very proud, and particularly for having won it as a madridista," he told Realmadrid TV after collected the Yahin Trophy.

Thibaut Courtois was awarded the Yashin Trophy as the best goalkeeper during 2022. After picking up the prize, the Belgian shared his thoughts with Realmadrid TV: “I’m very proud, and particularly for having won it as a madridista. This is one of the most special moments of my life. I’ve always wanted to show the madridistas that I never give up and will always work hard.”

“We all give our all for this club. Last season, we won those games thanks to the special atmosphere at the Bernabéu. That results in individual awards, like the one for Benzema and this one. I hope that we return to Cibeles this year.”

“As Benzema said on stage, you’ve got to really look after yourself. The game is getting more intense by the year and we’re doing everything to keep playing for many more years. For a goalkeeper, it’s so important to be mentally strong. You can be called on to make that important save to win the game at any time and you’ve got to concentrate for the full 90 minutes. It’s not always easy, but I’m so happy.”
“As well as my teammates, coaches, the president and everyone from the club, there’s also my family and my parents. When I was just seven, they took me to training and I do the same with my son to allow him to accomplish his dream. I've been very well brought up and was taught that there’s no reward without sacrifice. My fiancée has also helped me lots in the two years we’ve been together.”
