Whilst Chelsea’s defence has gotten a lot of plaudits this season for the solidity they’ve displayed, Thibaut Courtois has probably not gotten as much credit as he’s deserved. The Belgian ‘keeper has been in fine form, and belongs somewhere at the top of the list of the best current goalkeepers in the world.
Amusingly, Courtois could soon find his name topping another list: the French music charts. This is because French female hip hop artist Shay has released a single titled “Thibaut Courtois”, which is accompanied by a rather raunchy music video as well that is regularly racking up the views.
Interestingly, the singer has gone on record stating that the song isn’t about the keeper, insisting that they’ve never met each other. Rather, it is about the kind of disappointment one faces in love. That doesn’t stop her from name-dropping the goalkeeper multiple times throughout the song.
