Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has recently spoken about his situation and plans at the Stamford Bridge. In an interview, the Belgian and Chelsea No 1, has assured the Blues fans that despite Real Madrid showing interest in signing him, he wants to stay at Chelsea.
Courtois believes that there was some kind of misunderstanding and misinterpretation after the interview he previously gave in Belgium in March. According to the 24-year-old, the British media somehow mistranslated his words and made Chelsea fans furious by claiming that he wants to leave.
Courtois wants to put an end to all this speculation, which has been going on for quite a time by giving his best in tonight’s Premier League fixture – Antonio Conte’s Chelsea vs West Ham United!
The Blues Goalkeeper told the Evening Standard: ‘I am very happy at Chelsea and want to stay. I will try to show in every game that I am one of the best keepers in the world.
‘I know that I didn’t have the best of seasons but there are things that I have said in Belgium which have been misconstrued in England. It, unfortunately, has given the supporters the wrong impression.
‘It has put me and Chelsea in a bad light, that’s not good. I have never said I wanted to leave or anything. When it looks like I’m being put against the supporters, it’s not nice.
‘Am I upset the fans have the wrong impression of me? Yes, of course. I don’t want them to think bad of me.
‘In pre-season, I showed the quality I have. People may have had doubts about me.
‘But I think in the Euros for Belgium I showed I am one of the best and I want to continue showing that.
‘My objective, together with the team, is to get back to winning the League and show that Chelsea are one of the best sides in the world.’
Chelsea are hoping to start their season with a win, which will boost everyone’s morale in the team and after the signing of N’Golo Kante, the squad looks to be all set to enter the title race!
