The Red Devils will have to do without Thibaut Courtois for the European Championship. An argument with national team coach Domenico Tedesco meant he would not play.

The final straw appeared to be when Courtois was not allowed to wear the captain’s armband against Austria last year. “All I can say is that Domenico Tedesco decided to give Romelu Lukaku the captain’s armband for the match against Austria. He played the unfortunate Champions League final with Inter against Manchester City and we thought he would be delighted,” explains coach Frank. Vercauteren in HUMO.

100th international match

“Thibault knew he would be captain after a few days against Estonia,” continues Vercauteren. “Nothing was said at the time about celebrating his 100th cap.” Courtois played his 100th international match for the Red Devils against Austria. Then he wanted the captain’s armband.

HUMO reports that the Red Devils would prefer to appoint Romelu Lukaku instead of Thibaut Courtois as captain. In addition, the newspaper also says that Kevin De Bruyne and Courtois are less good in the group than Lukaku or Eden Hazard were. “They’re all different personalities,” says Verkaterin.

Vercauteren added: “Although unfortunately, the European Championship will be without Courtois. De Bruyne will be the captain. Anyway, I think so. Domenico will make that decision.”
