We’re not robots, Courtois hits out at UEFA, FIFA

The Belgium and Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has launched a scathing criticism of the Union of European Football Associations and Federation International Football Association for scheduling more and more matches at the expense of player welfare.

Courtois hit out at the growing football calendar after his side’s 2-1 defeat by Italy in the Nations League third-place play-off, labelling the match, in which both teams rotated their squads, a “money game”.

The calendar has been squeezed in the last 18 months due to the Covid pandemic, with the Champions League and many of the continent’s top leagues taking place in shorter spaces of time but with the same amount of matches.
