Interviewed by the newspaper The Team before the Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday at the Stade de France (9 p.m.), Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois praised his two Real team-mates, French striker Karim Benzema and his compatriot in midfield, Eduardo Camavinga. For the Belgian goalkeeper, the tricolor center forward is a real modern striker and he is, according to him, the favorite for the Ballon d’Or. “Karim (Benzema) is on top. Even in training today, he scored goals… You tell yourself, he’s incredible. He has such ease. He’s not a very fast attacker, but he’s very, very complete. He takes space well, he picks up, he is strong with his head, in one touch, to keep the ball, to dribble. Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, we depend a lot on his goals. We saw it this season against PSG, Chelsea, etc. Last season, it was the case too but people are guided by trophies, and not by performances, I think. But this year, he is the big favorite for the Ballon d’Or.Courtois said.
The Red Devils goalkeeper also mentioned the case of Camavinga, a very talented player who has successfully integrated into the Madrid team. “Eduardo (Camavinga), his level did not surprise me. He’s a very strong player. He’s fast, he dares to hit and he shoots very hard. He is a dynamic player who immediately felt confident. To succeed in Madrid, you have to know how to manage the pressure. If you succeed, you succeed. But I knew him a little and I knew he was a great talent. In France, there are a few (laughs). There is also Tchouaméni, who is good in the middle. France have two starting teams for the World Cup in Qatar.explained the goalkeeper of Real.
