Courtois: Spanish press want to kill me

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has defended his season form.
Courtois says he considers himself one of the best players in the world despite committing a howler against Russia that let them equalise through Denis Cheryshev even though Belgium ran out eventual 3-1 winners.
“I got a nudge from the Russian attacker,” he said after the game. “I didn’t have the strength to clear it. I made a bit of a mistake. That’s the life of a goalkeeper. After that, I calmed down and played my game.
“I still consider myself one of the best in the world,” he said. “Even though the Spanish press want to kill me. I feel strong, I’m calm, playing well and training well.”
