The Belgian goalkeeper, a summer signing from Chelsea, tried to play down the rivalry with Navas after the game and said they have a good rapport, despite the press "wanting to play us off against each other" for the starting spot at the Santiago Bernabeu. "The controversy is made by the press".
"I get on with everyone very well, the communication with the defence is going well, even during the competition", Courtois said.
Courtois, surprisingly, took a dig at the size of Stamford Bridge, stating that Bernabeu is a much bigger stadium.
The post-Cristiano Ronaldo era at Real Madrid has gone just fine thus far in La Liga play as the club has secured back-to-back wins to start the season.
The statement by the Costa Rica and Real Madrid goalkeeper or should I say the newly crowned UEFA Goalkeeper of the year 2018 Is no surprise for anyone.
He also added that playing with Sergio Ramos is making him believe that his captain is the best center-back in the world. "If you look forward you only see a wall of people, while at Stamford Bridge you can still see the sky or the hotel behind the grandstand".
Following his departure, new manager Maurizio Sarri was forced to explore the transfer market and recruit Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for a world record £71.6m transfer fee. It was a performance that Zidane quoted as one of his most hard moments as Madrid manager and the squad will be eager to make sure that new manager, Julen Lopetegui, doesn't have to suffer a similar humiliation.
