Crazy play acting! Thibaut Courtois after being “kicked in the stomach” by Gareth Bale [GIF]
In many ways, you cannot blame Thibaut Courtois from milking a minor scuffle late on in Atletico Madrid’s famous win at Real Madrid on Saturday night.
Atletico recorded their first La Liga victory at the Bernabeu since 1999 and Courtois, as he has done all season, made some excellent saves to ensure they won 1-0.
But, the incident late on will leave a sour taste in the mouth and Gareth Bale will be fully aware what he might have to contend with in Spain in the coming weeks.
Bale went in on the on-loan Chelsea keeper but barely touched Courtois and certainly did not hit him in the stomach.
Cue a rolling a round in pain session from the Belgian custodian that looks more ridiculous every time you see the GIF above.
