Thibaut Courtois: Happy with Atletico

The 21-year-old signed for the Blues in 2011, but was immediately sent on loan to Atletico Madrid, where he is now in his third season.

As Courtois has emerged as one of the best keepers in La Liga, speculation over his future has ensued and even Barcelona president Sandro Rosell revealed his admiration for him earlier this month.

Courtois maintains that he is happy at Atletico, where he feels he has become one of the top five goalkeepers in the world.

"I am in my best form and I feel that I am among the five best goalkeepers in the world," he is quoted by AS.

"I've grown a lot at Atletico, especially last season when we won the European Super Cup and the Copa del Rey.

"I've made great progress, especially in terms of speed, reflexes and experience. "

On his future, Courtois did not want to speculate about what would happen.

"I want to play, I will not be sitting on the bench. At Atletico I feel great and it allows me to play in the Champions League," he added.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
