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)."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
