Courtois – The anger of Chelsea fans makes me sad


  • Chelsea’s goalie; Thibaut Courtois heart broken by Chelsea fans.
  • The Blues angered by his move to Real Madrid.
  • The Belgians’ motivation was to be closer to his family.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois admits that he feels sad about how some Chelsea fans have turned against him after his move to Real Madrid.

Courtois was at Chelsea for seven seasons although the first three were spent on loan at Atletico Madrid before joining Madrid in a £35m deal in the summer.

According to Courtois, he made the decision to leave Stamford Bridge in March and explained it was part of the reasons why he delayed his return to Chelsea after the World Cup.

When asked about the reactions of some Chelsea fans after his exit from Stamford Bridge, he said:

“It makes me feel sad and obviously they don’t know all the truth.”

“I think in March the decision was already made and I thought the club would accept it.”

“Then because the transfer was closed I did not show up because I thought it better not to disturb the team and the squad.”

“If I did go there maybe, I didn’t want to be toxic, so obviously it is a pity because I love Chelsea.”

“I loved playing there and I am happy to have won two Premier Leagues, a league cup and an FA Cup. Hopefully it will turn around.”

Although he claimed that the level at Madrid was higher than at Chelsea, he stated that he meant no disrespect to the club.

“Obviously you get some things in the media like I said there was not enough quality at Chelsea,”

Courtois said.

“I never meant that. I just said maybe in training it goes a little bit faster but that is also the quality of Real Madrid – that is not saying Chelsea does not have quality.”

He added that the big factor that motivated his move to the Bernabeu was the opportunity to be closer to his two children who live in Madrid, and hopes Chelsea fans understand this.

“I will always look back with a happy feeling to Chelsea,”

Courtois added.

“I had a chance to go back to Spain to be closer to my kids. That was an important thing for me.

“I know that a lot of Chelsea fans will understand my decision. I wish them the best and I am happy to see that they have won their first four games and I hope they can go on and win the league.”
