How Thibaut Courtois Reacted To Jose Mourinho And Antonio Conte Being Linked With Real Madrid

Thibaut Courtois is reportedly not a happy person.

Real Madrid appointed Julen Lopetegui in the summer following the managerial departure of Zinedine Zidane, but he's failing to deliver.

Talk is rife about a managerial swap. The likes of Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho have been heavily linked with the Bernabeu hot-seat.

A player who has been managed by both men actually holds fort between the sticks in the shape of Courtois, who joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer.

And he's apparently fuming about the club potentially luring in Conte or Mourinho to replace Lopetegui.

"I cannot believe it," Courtois - as reported as saying to his teammates in the dressing room by El Pais - said out loud, whilst looking pale via Football Espana.

"Here I am the only one who has worked with Conte and with Mourinho. I left London to not have to go through something like that again and now it turns out that Conte comes, and if not, Mourinho," he added.

Further reports suggest Courtois is hoping Roberto Martinez gets the nod.

Of course, Martinez is the Belgium manager and is believed to have a strong relationship with the keeper.

Meanwhile, Lopetegui prepares his charges for their biggest game of the season; Barcelona.
