FIRST TEAM ONLY

The father of the Belgian shot stopper Thibaut Courtois has clearly said that his son is not ready to be second in the pecking order at Chelsea. So, before having him, the Blues management will have to make a decision on the future of their first choice goalie Petr Cech.

Courtois had made a move to Stamford Bridge in July 2011 after leaving Genk, but, in the last 3 years, he hasn’t played a single match for Chelsea. He had been loaned out to the Spanish club Atletico Madrid immediately after his arrival and since then, he has been there only. He has already made close to 100 league appearances for Atletico and is currently their no. 1 goalkeeper.
