The last Champions League final that Real Madrid won was a before and after for some people who, due to their youth, could not record the previous white team competitions in their minds. That happened to a little boy of almost six years, who after the final in Paris became “obsessed” with Courtois, whom he draws every day since then.

In just a few days it will be his birthday and his family has not hesitated to give him a birthday present: a merengue goalkeeper shirt. However, they have not found any for his age, so his father has addressed the player directly through social networks to ask for an exchange by showing him the little boy’s portraits.

Hello Thibaut Courtois. First, thanks for existing », he begins:« Since the Champions League final my son is obsessed with you and he draws you every day. He has a birthday in a month and your shirt for his age (6 years old) is not on the Adidas or RM website, nor in physical stores. Shall we make an exchange?

The player himself has responded to the request. Although he affirms that for now there are no such small goalkeeper sizes, he has offered him his own shirt with which he will play next weekend against Betis.

The comments have not been long in coming, mainly from fans of the white team praising the goalkeeper’s attitude and his kindness to the father of this child who, surely, likes the proposed alternative much more.
