Thibaut Courtois insists he never mocked the height of England’s Jordan Pickford’s after the two sides met in the World Cup group stages.
“This thing about Jordan – I want to say and clarify it because I heard a lot of stuff,” Courtois said.
“I never mocked his height, I want to make that clear, because I would never mock the height of a goalkeeper.
“I only said that, because he got a touch, I would have saved it because I am 15cm taller, but I never mocked his height.
“He is a great goalkeeper. I want to make that clear.”
