- The 26-year-old made a last minute big summer move from Chelsea to Real Madrid

- The Belgian shot-stopper was reportedly not registered with UEFA in time for the clash

Newly-signed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will miss Real Madrid's UEFA Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid because he has not been registered.

The Belgium international was expected to make his debut for his new club following his KSh 4.6 billion switch from Chelsea to the Bernabeu.

According to Cadena COPE (Spain), the Champions League winners failed to register Courtois with UEFA and so he will have to watch the game against his former club from the sidelines.

The 26-year-old will now have to wait for his Real Madrid debut when La Liga resumes on Sunday, August 19.

PAY ATTENTION:

Courtois trained with his new teammates at the Lillekuela Stadium on Tuesday night, August 14, ahead of the game with his former club.

However, Costa Rican goalie Keylor Navas will start between the sticks against their rivals as Courtois waits in the wings.

But Courtois will be in line to make his debut in Sunday's La Liga clash against Getafe at the Bernabeu.

PAY ATTENTION:

TUKO.co.ke had earlier reported how and his plaque outside the Wanda Metropolitano vandalised on Saturday, August 11.

Security guards on ground had to intervene to prevent further damage to the sign following a 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan in a friendly.
