The former Chelsea stopper was in stunning form against Liverpool and was man-of-the-match as his NINE saves helped earn Madrid a 1-0 victory.
Courtois roared: “Yesterday I said when Real Madrid plays in the finals we win it. We have a good set of history.
“I had all the tweets coming my way that I would get humbled. Today it was the other way around.
“I needed to win a final for my career for all my hard work and to put respect on my name because I don’t think I have enough respect, especially in England.
“I saw a lot of criticism after a great season that I was not good enough. I’m just really proud of the performance from the team and when I needed to be there I was there for the team.
“We have beaten the best clubs in the world. This year, City and Liverpool were unbelievable this season fighting till the end in the Premier League.
“Liverpool won two cups and today they were really strong but I think I played a great game and that was the difference today because we had one chance and we scored it.”
Courtois certainly silenced his doubters on Saturday with a performance that will go down in Champions League final history.
