Some Chelsea fans mock “snake” Courtois after poor performance in Real Madrid’s CL defeat to Ajax

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois received plenty of criticism from Chelsea fans after shipping four goals against Ajax in the Champions League. 

The Blancos were beaten 4-1 at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night, with the Dutch giants advancing to the quarterfinals of the competition 5-3 on aggregate.

Madrid have won the European Cup in three successive seasons, but they have been a shadow of their former selves during the 2018-19 campaign which now looks destined to finish trophyless.

Ajax outplayed the Spanish giants from the start, taking the lead after just seven minutes through Hakim Ziyech. It was two ten minutes later, with David Neres scoring after outstanding work from Dusan Tadic in midfield.

Tadic then managed to get himself on the scoresheet on the hour mark, before Lasse Schone made sure of victory with an outstanding free kick late in the game.

Schone’s strike left Courtois red-faced, as the Danish midfielder somehow managed to loop the deal ball into the net from a seemingly impossible angle.

Courtois is one of the tallest ‘keepers in Europen football and yet somehow he was deceived by the flight of the ball, which invited Chelsea fans to jump on the mistake on social media.

As you can see in the tweet above, one Chelsea supporter labelled the Belgian as a “snake”, referring to his big money move to Madrid from Chelsea last summer.

Some Blues supporters could not resist taking a jab at their club’s former shot-stopper, who moved to the Bernabeu in search of consistent major trophies.

Ironically, his debut season in Madrid will end without silverware and his reputation has taken another huge dive in the wake of the team’s latest result.
