No One In Madrid Talks About Ronaldo-Courtois

Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure has been keenly felt by Real Madrid, according to goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but the Santiago Bernabeu dressing room is not lamenting the loss of their former talisman.

While the Belgium No.1 concedes that the Blancos have failed to fully replace the Portuguese forward, the players are not reflecting on his absence

Ronaldo left as Madrid’s all-time record goalscorer when he joined Italian champions Juventus in July and Los Blancos’ form has faltered this season.

Julen Lopetegui was sacked as head coach after a 5-1 Clasico thrashing at the hands of Barcelona and, although matters have improved marginally of late under Santiago Solari, they lie 10 points shy of their bitter rivals at La Liga’s summit.

Courtois arrived from Chelsea a month on from Ronaldo’s exit and the Belgium international insists the spectre of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner does not linger over Madrid’s season.
