And on the eve of the new season, the worst worries of the three-time LaLiga champions came true.

Courtois allegedly sustained the injury on Thursday morning and was escorted off the practice field in tears, per COPE.

Real Madrid medical professionals immediately performed tests to determine the severity of the injury.

The club has since announced that the Belgian will need to sit out a significant amount of time.
