Why Kevin De Bruyne and Courtois haven’t spoken in years

New details are continuing to emerge over Belgium’s underwhelming World Cup campaign, as Roberto Martinez struggles to maintain the squad.

Martinez has admitted that there are some issues within the squad, with the Red Devils facing an early exit if they lose to Croatia.

His big stars have clashed in the dressing room and have made controversial remarks to the media.

One of the new findings indicates that Kevin de Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois actually do not speak due to private reasons, despite being on the same national side.

RTL reports that the two stars haven’t spoken in years. Fans online have claimed that the ‘private reasons’ mentioned involve De Bruyne’s ex-girlfriend, Caroline Lijnen.

In 2014, Lijnen revealed she had cheated on KDB with his Belgium teammate Courtois.

She claimed it was payback of sorts, after De Bruyne had admitted he had cheated on her with her best friend.

The two (Lijnen and De Bruyne) were in a relationship for three years before breaking it off due to the affair. KDB was devastated by the news at that time, but Daily Mail reported he and Courtois had patched up their issues.

However, the new report by RTL that the two haven’t spoken in years, has reignited memories of the Courtois affair
