Real Madrid keeper Courtois raps Odriozola after defeat at Mallorca

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois rapped Alvaro Odriozola after defeat at Real Mallorca.

Courtois didn't think Odriozola should have made the tackle that saw him receive his second yellow card at Son Moix.

Real Madrid lost 1-0 to Real Mallorca in the Balearic Islands and the right-back was dismissed for a foolish challenge on Junior Lago whilst already on a yellow card.

"I think he touched the ball for the first yellow," Courtois said afterwards.

"But the second is fair. I don't think that with a card he should have made that foul.

"But it's because of adrenaline."
