Thibaut Courtois wins La Liga honors

Angel Martinez

The Blues keeper on loan to Atletico Madrid has won the Zamora award for his excellent 2012/13 season

Chelsea's on-loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been awarded the 2012/13 Ricardo Zamora award by Marca. The Zamora trophy is awarded to the La Liga goalkeeper with the best goals to games ratio, but is limited to goalkeepers who have made at least 28 appearances during the season. Courtois has the best ratio of any La Liga keeper by a fairly wide margin, as 3rd place Atletico have only allowed 30 goals during the entire 2012/13 campaign.

Courtois is the first goalkeeper not from one of the two biggest clubs to win the award since the 2006/07 season. The last four Zamora's have all gone to Barcelona's Victor Valdes, with the one before that going to Iker Casillas.

Congratulations to the big Belgian on what will hopefully be his last award in Spain, as I think the majority of us would love to see him honing his craft in England next season. It's been a sensational year for the youngster, and the award is well deserved.
