Afterwards of the party between the Real Madrid and the Elche, which finished with a marker of 1-1, Thibaout Courtois, archer of the team directed by Zinedine Zidane, rajó with some statements against of the referee of the meeting, Figueroa Vázquez, the one who sanctioned a penalti against of his group. Curiously, the statements of the Belgian arrived shortly after that Casemiro, mediocampista Merengue, the one who is used to to be wrapped in controversies given his rudo style of game, declared that his team did not speak of the referees.

The words of Courtois on Figueroa Vásquez were the following: "Us pitan a penalti by a small agarrón, when in the first part there is an agarrón equal to Benzema and no pita at all. This is not correct. If pitas one, have to pitar the another. It seems that there are referees that likes them pitar these things". It is curious that the put madridista speak of these situations, when his team is used to to see benefited by the referee's decisions, especially if they have to see with maximum penalties.

Incidentally, to the eyes of Courtois, the deciones of the referee Figueroa Vásquez have conditioned the performance of his team during the rest of the commitment. Apropos this, the Belgian commented: "Perhaps in the second time have been too pending of what did the referee. Touched? We can not be it because we come of a very good series

Courtois Defended to his Real Madrid

Afterwards of the tie and of his statements against of the referee of the commitment, Courtois also treated to look for him explanations to the tie that achieved the Elche in front of his group. In this sense, the exjugador of Chelsea explained the following: "I do not think that it was excess of confidence, but they have had the penalti and have been able to play more comfortable. We have created two or three occasions but Edgar has stopped them very well".

Again it is quite ironic that the archer of the team that stars the majority of the referee's controversies of LaLiga Santander was quein was complaining of the decisions of a referee, since they were in his against. Perhaps it happens that Courtois, from his arch, can not see the actions that suceden inside his same area, like the hand of Sergio Bouquets that was obviada by the VAR days backwards.
