Rafael Nadal, Fernando Alonso, Usain Bolt but also the actor Antonio Banderas or the singer Julio Iglesias. Real Madrid has supporters in all four corners of the world and the various celebrities rarely hide their love for the Spanish club. F1 is no exception to the rule since Fernando Alonso and carlos sainz are big aficionados of the meringue club.
Questioned by our special correspondent, Gaetan Vigneronthe Ferrari driver agreed to leave F1 aside for a few moments to discuss the present of the two Belgians defending the colors of the club of his heart. “Thibaut Courtois ? It’s the best !”
Before dwelling at greater length on the case of the captain of the Red Devils. “Re Eden Hazard, I loved the way he played at Chelsea, he was one of the best players in the world. But this is not the first time that a player arriving from the Premier League has struggled to win at Real Madrid. I don’t know if it’s related to the style of play of the team or the league. But I still believe he can play at a very high level and as soon as he clicks it will be as good as he was with Chelsea.”
The Madrid native will, however, have to put aside his love for the recent Champions League winner to focus on qualifying in the Netherlands. A session to follow, from 3 p.m., on the RTBF media.
