Barcelona should not be named champions if the season is unfinished, according to Thibaut Courtois.
“Of course I’d love to finish the season. We are two points behind Barcelona, so it’s still possible we can be champions. So it’s unfortunate if the season is canceled,” the Belgium international said on his YouTube channel.
“For example, in France, there were two teams that were relegated, they maybe could have saved themselves, they won’t like that. In the Netherlands, no team will be crowned champions, no team is being promoted or relegated. It’s unfortunate for guys from the second tier who couldn’t go up.
“So if they decide this morning to stop the competition and Barcelona are named champions, I also wouldn’t find that completely right. The coach of Barcelona wouldn’t find that logical.
“They drew against us once and lost once, so we showed them that we are the better team, but we’re still two points behind, so I don’t really agree with that.
“In England, I could understand if Liverpool became champions. I can understand if they made them the champions.
“What do you do with those that are supposed to go up and down? I think the economy, the tv money plays a big role in that. It’s difficult.”
Real Madrid are without a league title for over three years and this season might be the chance to end that drought!
