Thibaut Courtois: Has impressed in two years at Atletico Madrid

The Belgian goalkeeper has spent the last two seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid since joining Chelsea from Racing Genk in June 2011.

The 21-year-old has already played for his country at senior level and is seen as a long-term replacement for Petr Cech, but has earned glowing reviews during his stint at the Estadio Vicente Calderon.

He said: "Chelsea have the young players that maybe in two or three years' time can win everything.

"I signed with Chelsea, not just because it is a big club but also because of its commitment to young players. I want to be part of Chelsea history."

However, Courtois is open-minded as to whether or not he will get the chance to impress with his parent club.

He said: "Chelsea have always been very fair with me and they are also smart people and they know that I need to play.

"I don't know where that will be but I do know I have proved myself in the two years I have been here (in Madrid)."

stark contrast to Neymar's treatment at Barca his first year. He was brushed off to the flank and told to stay there. I thought it was a bit harsh from Martino to margianalize Neymar like that, but good grief, it's better than woshipping him like his national team does.
