Thibaut Courtois was charged with Diego Simeone in connection with Chola's statements that he took away the merits of Real Madrid players who won the best prizes. "The real things that create populism in their hobby," said the gatekeeper Merengue.
The Belgian, led by the Argentine coach Atlético de Madrid, stressed that "this is football and you have to respect all the opinions." However, he added: "The vote ended in June and played for Chelsea. It's not fair to despise me."
In relation to the position of Simeon, the goalkeeper was forced. "I spent three years with him and when you are fighting Real Madrid or big teams, he declares that." To offend me, you have to do a lot. That does not hinder us. I know how this world is and I know my merits. "
Courtois words were added to those of Luka Modric, who also responded to Chola. "It's not fair that our achievements are reduced to their populist thesis," said the Croatian conqueror who won the Golden Ball.
