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.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
