Thibaut Courtois has cast uncertainty over his future with the Belgium national team by publicly criticising manager Domenico Tedesco.

Courtois Brands Belgium Boss Tedesco A Liar

When Courtois was not selected for the captaincy during Belgium’s June 2018 matches against Austria and Estonia, the tension between him and Tedesco grew.


Earlier on Friday, Tedesco stated that his team will play without Courtois in the Euros despite his best efforts to patch things up with the goalkeeper.

The Real Madrid shot-stopper responded with the ‘liar’ emoji to the Belgium boss’ quotes on X.


Talking to the media, Tedesco said [via Football Transfers]: “It’s good that Courtois is fit again.

“But he communicated very clearly. We are focusing on the players who are here.


“We plan our preparation based on his statements.

“I tried everything to take him to the European Championship this summer.

“But the last thing I heard was that he didn’t feel ready to go.

“It was clear and honest on his part”.


Courtois made his debut for the Red Devils back in 2011 at the age of just 19.

He has since gone on to make 102 appearances for Belgium, making multiple appearances at World Cups and the Euros with the country’s golden generation.
