Courtois, 29, was speaking after his country lost 2-1 against European champions Italy in UEFA's Nations League third-place play-off on Sunday - a match he described as "pointless" in the build-up.
Below was what the goalkeeper said, Sky Sports can confirm.
The reason why Thibaut Courtois was right could be found below
1. In my opinion, It's true, at least players should be given enough time to rest because they are human and not machines.
2. A lot was said about mental health, but the physical well-being of these top players is sacrificed for it of the football authorities with an inhuman schedule and not enough rest time. They should stop these UEFA Nations League.
3. In my opinion, Players that don't want to play should not be forced to play, at some teams, they are forced to call those players where indeed they are not fit to play.
