Carlo Ancelotti says Courtois is the best goalkeeper in the world

During his pre-match press conference, Ancelotti was asked about Courtois’ place among the best in his role. The Belgian has been controversially dropped from the nominations for FIFA’s Best Men’s Goalkeeper of the Year award. Ancelotti was clear about his position. “It’s nonsense. Courtois, for me, is the best in the world”.

That said, he still watered down his remarks, in quotes provided by SPORT . “For me, Carvajal is the best right-back in the world, Mendy is the best left-back in the world. Whoever made the list should throw away their journalism license, or whatever, if Courtois isn’t in the top ten goalkeepers in the world.”

Real Madrid take on Mallorca on Monday night, with the chance to extend their lead over Sevilla to ten points. Courtois has been instrumental for Real Madrid this season, coming within two goals of Yassine Bounou in the Zamora award for the keeper who concedes the fewest goals.
