Thibaut Courtois has dismissed suggestions he is dreading the prospect of working under former managers Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.
Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on Friday morning that the Madrid goalkeeper was not looking forward to his former Blues’ bosses taking charge.
Julen Lopetegui’s position as Madrid boss is under threat following five games without a win in all competitions prior to Tuesday night’s Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen and sitting in seventh place in the La Liga table.

The bosses referred to by El Pais on Friday morning were Jose Mourinho (L) and Antonio Conte
El Pais reported Courtois as saying: ‘I cannot believe it. Here I am the only one who has worked with Conte and with Mourinho.
‘I left London to not have to go through something like that again and now it turns out that Conte comes, and if not, Mourinho.’
Courtois took to Twitter later on Friday to confirm that what was reported in the Spanish paper was wrong.
