Chelsea are set to face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Quater finals, Amid Stiff Warnings from Former Chelsea Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
It is to note that Chelsea were dorminant in their last two meetings, against Real Madrid in the champions league semi final last season. They would be seriously determined to replicate similar results as they battle the Los Blancos at Stamford bridge, on the 6th of April.
“it’s always a pleasure to play against them” was the first few lines of his statement when asked about his feelings for his former football club.
Here were his words as Quoted by Vince; “Chelsea will always be one of my teams because they helped me to become the goalkeeper I am now; they signed me when I was 18 and gave me the opportunity to play for Atletico and then play in the Premier League and win it. I still have friends there.”.
“…and it’s always a pleasure to play against them. Obviously, I have a fondness for Chelsea, and if I see them win a title, I congratulate the people I know, but when they play against me… I hope we win.”
It’s no longer a New Reality that Chelsea fans despise the Goalkeeper, as he left them at the point where they needed him most, the board were left with no choice than to spend heavily to sign Kepa arizabalaga for a record fee.
That feeling still hurts Chelsea fans to this day.
