The Belgium and Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has launched a scathing criticism of Uefa and Fifa for scheduling more and more matches at the expense of player welfare.

Courtois hit out at the growing football calendar after his side’s 2-1 defeat by Italy in the Nations League third-place play-off, labelling the match, in which both teams rotated their squads, a “money game”.

“We are not robots. It’s just more and more games and less rest for us and nobody cares about us. When will we get a rest? Never,” Courtois said.
