- Real Madrid boss claims Courtois has been necessary for the goalkeepers "competition"
After a confident 3-1 win over AC Milan during the last preseason test for Real Madrid, Julen Lopetegui revealed how happy he was to see players doing their best, however, mentioning that some things would still demand changes in the nearest future.
On the game preparation
"We have focused all the preparation to that game and there are still things to be polished, to adjust, we need to score more and concede less," analyzed the coach, who also said some very complimentary words to his attacking players.
"We had to adapt to the late arrival of some players who had different training rhythms," he said about the inclusion of the World Cup players who did not travel to the tour.
"Gareth is committed and happy and will vary his attack position, we are very happy with him and with Karim, who is also very excited and eager to score."
On the current squad
Despite picking an eleven with many potential starters, the coach did not want to give clues about whether it will look like the final version.
"There is still a lot of preseason and we will make decisions throughout this month," Lopetegui said about the transfer market, leaving the door open for any arrival or exit at the end of it.

The Basque coach also referred to the signing of Thibaut Courtois, stating that the competition among the goalies will be more intensive.
"The advantage of having Keylor and Courtois is the competition," said Julen, "we do not see it as a problem, we see it as two good solutions."
