Real Madrid coach Lopetegui: Courtois fantastic; we'll select players fairly

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui insists he won't play favourites with his goalkeepers.

Lopetegui handed Thibaut Courtois a debut for victory over Leganes, demoting Keylor Navas to the bench on the weekend.

But he insisted: "The transfer of Courtois, I was already aware. He is a fantastic keeper.

"We are delighted with the keepers we have. We have to manage them in the best way and optimise the quality for the purposes. We will try to do it in the most honest way.

"We are well covered. We have solutions and no problems."
