Thibaut Courtois: Hoping to stay on loan at Atletico Madrid

The Belgian international has been on loan with Atletico for two seasons since joining Chelsea from Racing Genk in the summer of 2011.

The 21-year-old is seen as a long-term replacement for Petr Cech at Chelsea, but Courtois admits he does not want to return to Stamford Bridge next season and find himself playing second fiddle to Cech as he wants to be playing regular first-team football.

He said: "I know Chelsea are a fair club. The board are smart people and know I need to play.

"I like the Chelsea project with young players very much.

"In two or three years Chelsea will have a team to win everything.

"I want to stay. I'd rather play in La Liga than be a substitute in the Premier League.

"There's a World Cup and I want to go. Here I will be able to play in the Champions League and there's no better place to play than here. At Atletico I have progressed a lot."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
