Thibaut Courtois Reported To Police After Incident Involving Paparazzi

Thibaut Courtois' time in Madrid hasn't really gone to plan as of yet.

On top of some of his performances on the field, it has now been reported that the Real Madrid goalkeeper was reported to police this week for an incident involving a member of the press.

Spanish publication COPE claim that Courtois 'sensed he was being chased' by paparazzi in a car, so he decided to throw something at the vehicle.

Damage was inflicted to the car, which led to the reporter notifying the police about the incident.

However, it does seem that no further action will be taken after reporter opted against formalising their complaint.

As mentioned earlier, Courtois has been criticised for a number of performances this season.

And earlier this month, he failed to receive a warm welcome by Atletico Madrid fans on his first match against them as a Real Madrid player, being pelted with toy rats from those in the crowd.

The 26-year-old also found his plaque outside of the ground damaged, with another one of those pesky toy rats appearing on it.

Thoughts on Thibaut Courtois' performances for Los Blancos this season?

Let us know in the comments.
