Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois threw a punch at Tottenham while voicing his opinion on Gareth Bale’s move to Jose Mourinho.
The current No. 1 Real Madrid spent seven years at Stamford Bridge, claiming two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup, before moving to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018, where he became team-mates at Bale.
Speaking to Spanish outlet El Larguero about the Welshman’s move, Courtois wished Bale the best of luck at Spurs but couldn’t resist sending a cheeky message to his old London rivals.

“What Bale has discussed with the coach is personal,” he said of Bale’s difficult relationship with Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.
“I don’t know what he was thinking, but then it’s decisions that everyone makes.
‘I’ve had a good relationship with Gareth and I wish him the best of luck this year, even if he’s not playing for the good London team.
“He’s a great player.”
