Thibaut Has Always Been A Real Madrid Fan

He dreamed of playing for Real Madrid since he was little, and now he is living his dream. 

While growing up, he was a massive fan of Iker Casillas, and Iker used to play for Real Madrid.

Iker is a former goalkeeper, and Thibaut used to love him. The reason he started loving Real Madrid was just because of him. 

He bought a Casillas jersey and used to hang a big Real Madrid flag in his room. 

He admitted that he has always been a Madridista since he was little. He said he joined the club because of his love for Iker. 

Thibaut Was Born To Be A Volleyball Player

Thibaut comes from a family of volleyball players. 

His parents used to play for the biggest volleyball club in Belgium, and his sister also played for the national team in Belgium. 

It is a sport that needs tall people to get to the ground; when he was a child, he used to go to bed and play beach volleyball. 

But his interest was in football. So when he was five, he joined a youth academy. 

He said his volleyball skills had helped him a lot as a goalkeeper. 

Did Thibaut Have A Secret Affair With Kevin De Bruyne's Girlfriend?

Thibaut made headlines when he was lined to Caroline Linen, the girlfriend of Belgian footballer Kevin

Caroline claimed that she had a secret affair with Thibaut when he was still in a relationship with Kevin.

She said he even used to cook for him, which Kevin never did for her. 

She even said that when Kevin was in Madrid, he cheated on her, and she also did the same to him. But all this rumor was never confirmed. 

But this rumor caused much trouble for Thibaut as many Belgian national team players stopped talking to him.
