Ed de Goey has warned Jose Mourinho that he faces a near-impossible task in choosing between Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois as Chelsea’s number one next season.

Courtois is due to return to Stamford Bridge ahead of the new campaign after spending a third season on loan to Atletico Madrid.

And the Chelsea boss must now decide whether he is to place his faith in the 22-year-old Belgium international or stick with the experienced Cech ahead of the new campaign.

“Chelsea have got a problem because they have got two very excellent goalkeepers,” former Chelsea stopper De Goey told talkSPORT.

“I don’t know how they are going to make the choice on who is going to be number one and who is going to be number two and if the other can stay or if is he going to leave.”
