Courtois returns to form: Ancelotti's encouragement

Thibaut Courtois is back in action. Carlo Ancelotti confirmed it in the press conference before the match against Real Sociedad. The Belgian goalkeeper has recovered from his second knee injury and is ready to support the team in the final stretch of the season.

At Valdebebas, they highlight his impressive training performances. His saves have pleasantly surprised the coaching staff led by Ancelotti. The coach even congratulated him at the end of the session.

It’s fantastic news to see signs of Courtois returning to his best form. If he regains his peak level, there’s no doubt he’s the best goalkeeper around.

However, Andriy Lunin is expected to start in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final, barring any surprises. Nevertheless, Courtois might get some action on Saturday against Cádiz, according to whispers in the dressing room.

Lunin’s Situation

The Ukrainian goalkeeper has one year left on his contract and will have to decide his future in a few months. Florentino Pérez won’t let him leave for free. The club’s top brass in Chamartín are in favor of keeping him, although he wants to play and get minutes.

José Félix Díaz, a journalist at MARCA, raised doubts about this situation, suggesting that anything could happen. Real Madrid will try to convince him that he’s an important asset for the future, but ultimately, he’ll have the final say.
