“In June we have to play four times in the Nations League again. Why? In November we have to play a World Cup. We’re going to get injured and nobody cares about us anymore. After a tough season, we have to play four times in June, followed by three weeks of vacation. That’s just not enough for footballers to perform at a high level for a year. And if we remain silent, nothing will change.” said a very angry Courtois last weekend.
The Belgian number one yearned for a holiday and so he went out with his Israeli girlfriend Mishel. Courtois has a few extra days off because the league game against Athletic Club was postponed because the South American World Cup qualifying campaign will take longer than expected. The Limburger will therefore only have to play again next Tuesday with De Koninklijke, in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Off to the Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa Hotel in Finestrat, not far from Benidorm and Valencia. There Courtois and Gerzig enjoyed a relaxing break away from the crowds and from each other.
Gerzig, who shone last month in a Hunkemöller’s campaign, did say that she did not always find the move to Madrid easy.
“Those who know me know how deeply connected I am with the sea,” she wrote on Instagram. “All my life I lived nearby and I was also a captain in the navy. It is a big part of who I am today. The move to Madrid was therefore a big step. Not only because it is a completely different country, but also because there is no sea. In the meantime I have fallen in love with the city, but sometimes I have to visit the sea to recharge myself.”
