Courtois Ball Control Not A Source Of Worry For Lopetegui

share on:

Julen Lopetegui says he is not losing sleep over Thibaut Courtois footwork ability or the lack of it.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper resumed duties between the sticks, after Navas was the man against Roma in midweek.

The Belgium international went largely untested in the narrow 1-0 win and Courtois inability to use the ball at his feet was discussed in the aftermath.

And asked about Courtois’ ability on the ball after Madrid’s narrow win, Lopetegui suggested it is a matter of practice for the former Chelsea goalkeeper.

“He has conditions to be able to do it, he does it and surely he will improve more,” Lopetegui told a news conference.

“I would not dwell on a problem that does not exist. He has a good command of the ball, a good kick.

“When a start does not work out sometimes it’s not the goalkeeper’s fault.”
