Thibaut Courtois is once again in the prizes, more votes than world champion Emiliano Martínez


Our compatriot Thibaut Courtois has been elected goalkeeper of the year 2022 by the International Federation of Football Historians and Statisticians (IFFHS) ahead of the Argentinian world champion Emiliano Martínez and the Moroccan Yassine Bono.

The World Cup may not have been successful, but at club level Thibaut Courtois did have a great 2022. At Real Madrid he was one of the strongholds and won four prizes: the Spanish national title, Champions League, Spanish and European Supercup.

That gave our compatriot 125 votes, compared to 110 for Martinez and 55 for Bono.

Courtois was already awarded by the IFFHS in 2018, then largely thanks to his performances at the World Cup in Russia, where he was also voted goalkeeper of the tournament.

Courtois already received the Lev Yashin trophy for best goalkeeper at the Ballon d’Or gala in 2022 and is also a favorite in the best goalkeeper category on February 27 at the FIFA gala.
