Thibaut Courtois sends Champions League warning to Chelsea

Courtois left Chelsea in 2018 after an impressive World Cup where he won the Goalkeeper of the Tournament.
The 29 years old Belgian signed for Chelsea in 2011 from Genk. He was loaned to Atletico Madrid where he spent three years. He returned to Chelsea in 2014 and was assigned the #13 shirts previously worn by Victor Moses.

Courtois made 154 appearances for Chelsea winning two premier Leagues in the process. The 2018 FIFA Best Goalkeeper award winner’s move to Real Madrid was seen as a betrayal by Blues Fans.

The Belgian Shot Stopper was part of the Madrid that lost to Chelsea in the semi-final of the Champions League last season. Speaking ahead of the Real Madrid Champions quarterfinals with Chelsea, he claims he is still fond of Chelsea and He cherishes the time he spends at Stamford Bridge but insists he will not apologize if he makes saves against his former Club.

Courtois said on his YouTube channel Thibaut Talks that he believed Real Madrid could avenge their semi-final setback last season.
He said: ‘It’s very special. Last year we already played in the semi-finals and lost, so hopefully, this time, there will be a victory.’

He went on to say that the game on Wednesday will be different this year since there will be a crowd.

‘It will be different because there will be a crowd, and there may be some whistles in protest at my departure, but I hope people remember the beautiful moments of winning two leagues [and] the FA Cup,’ he said.

He went on to add: ‘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 allowed me 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. Apologize for my saves? No, it’s been almost four years now, and I defend my club.’

‘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,’ he concluded.

Chelsea will hope they can beat Real Madrid again this season as they seek to defend their Champions League this season, however, Real Madrid is yet to win a game against Chelsea in a competitive match after unsuccessful attempts.
