Thibaut Courtois has his sights set firmly on a maiden Champions League title after being named Goalkeeper of the Year at FIFA’s The Best awards

The Belgium international reached the final of the competition in 2014 with Atletico Madrid, but they lost to city rivals Real Madrid 4-1 after extra-time.

Four years later and Courtois is now part of a Los Blancos side that have won the Champions League for the past three years under Zinedine Zidane after completing a transfer from Chelsea this summer.

Now, on the back of being voted as the Goalkeeper of the Year, Courtois aims to go and add the Champions League title to his honours list.

He told Sports Mole: “[I am] very happy, very proud.

“Obviously I think it’s a nice trophy that you can win – an individual award, obviously the team awards are more important, like winning a league, winning a European Cup, that’s always the best but getting recognition for your season is always nice.

Reguilon ‘100%’ confident Real Madrid’s glory days will return

Spanish full-back Sergio Reguilon is "100%" certain Real Madrid will win a major trophy next season and is determined to be a part of it.

“Obviously I missed out once against them [in the Champions League final] four years ago, so I hope maybe this season or in the future to win it.

“I think we have a great team and we’ll do our best to win another title.”
