Courtois Left Out of Real Madrid Squad.

Thibaut Courtois has been left out of Real Madrid’s squad to face Granada, just a few hours after the club denied he has an anxiety problem.

A statement from the club said:

“Courtois has been diagnosed and treated for gastroenteritis with dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, which made it impossible for him to finish Tuesday’s game against Brugge.

“The player is responding well to the treatment.”

As such, Courtois was not named in the Madrid squad to face La Liga surprise package Granada when Zidane announced his 19-man squad later the same day.

Alphonse Areola, who replaced Courtois against Brugge, will be joined by Castilla goalkeepers Javier Belman and Diego Altube in the group.
