Courtois will wear No.1 jersey at Real Madrid

Thibaut Courtois has revealed that he will wear the No.1 jersey for Real Madrid this season. The first time in his career that the goalkeeper has worn the No.1 jersey – while he has used it for his national team. Either at Genk, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, or Real Madrid, he always preferred to have No.13 on his back or have had such a number. “When Real asked me to play with No. 1, I felt honored,” the Belgian goalkeeper wrote in a statement. “Wearing the No.1 jersey is the ultimate reward for celebrating a tough but successful past season. It further motivates me to turn that number into greater results.”

Courtois also recognized the importance of the No.1 jersey at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. “Playing as No.1 also has a crucial symbolic meaning,” he added. “Without a doubt, it is a symbolic number for any goalkeeper to wear. Following the footsteps of true Real Madrid icons like Iker Casillas, Ricardo Zamora, Bodo Illgner, and Francisco Buyo, I am grateful to represent the world’s best club. It’s no hidden that Iker Casillas is my huge example among these legendary goalkeepers.” Although he decided to end his career on the pitch, he will remain my all-time No.1 “Like Iker, I hope to have great moments with this No.1 on the jersey and make the whole Real Madrid family proud.”
