Former Chelsea star blasts Chelsea, belittles Stamford Bridge


Belgian international and former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will not stop speaking ill of his former club after joining Real Madrid.

Courtois granted an interview to Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad, when he gave many discrepancies between the two clubs.

The Belgian No.1 left the Bridge during the summer to tag with the Santiago Bernabeu outfit after forcing is way out of Chelsea football club by not returning after the World Cup campaign in Russia.

Courtois aggravated the hatred between him and his former club after the match between his club and Leganes.

He claimed that the level of his current club is higher than Chelsea.

He added that In training, you would see that the level is high. That he is presently experiencing on a daily basis that Sergio Ramos is the best centre-back in the world.

While also claiming that the level [at Real Madrid] is way higher than at Chelsea.

The departure of the Real Madrid’s No. 1. left Chelsea with no choice than to opt for Kepa Arrizabalaga from Atletic Bilbao.

The Spanish keeper was bought around £71 million after he caught Sarri’s attention.

Courtois may not visit Stanford Bridge any further to show how much he enjoyed speaking against his old club when he compared the capacities.

“[The Bernabeu is] twice as big [as Stamford Bridge], of course, it’s a very different feeling. If you look forward, you only see a wall of people, while at Stamford Bridge you can still see the sky or the hotel behind the grandstand.”

The new Chelsea’s No.1 has manned the post four times and has kept two clean sheets; seeing Chelsea to four straight wins in four matches.
