Belgium was dropped from the European Championship in the quarterfinals. The Belgians, who started with the favorites band together with France and England, fell against Italy, the finalist team. The players of the devils team have gone on vacation, including Courtois. The Real Madrid goalkeeper, after finishing a great season, is enjoying a well-deserved rest, although he has attracted attention for some statements after a Vertonghen question in which he disparages Anthony Martial.
Vertonghen asked Courtois for three big stars who were left out of the Eurocup. The Real Madrid goalkeeper, almost instantly, named his former captain and former teammate: Sergio Ramos. Then he was thinking. When in doubt, the Belgian defender named him a list of players: Haaland, Pjanic, Van Dijk, Oblak, Ter Stegen, Zaniolo, Martial … and this last name caught his attention. Hearing the surname of the Frenchman Courtois asked: “Martial? What is he a star? ”.

The statements and went viral practically instantly. However, neither Martial nor his club, Manchester United, have answered or sent a message that can be interpreted as such.
