Atletico Madrid ace Saul Niguez admits Thibaut Courtois’ move to Real Madrid surprised him.
Courtois will face former club Atletico this weekend having spent three seasons on-loan from Chelsea.
Saul said, “I was surprised to see him in white, yes.
“I expected him not to do that, we’re going to have to believe he wants to be with his family.
“The Atleti should understand him because I know he has a lot of affection for Atletico.”
He added: “I am surprised that (Antoine) Griezmann was not at the FIFA awards and even more so that (Jan) Oblak is not in.
“Right now Oblak is on a different level.”
