Thibaut Courtois makes honest admission about Chelsea future
The Chelsea goalkeeper speaks out about his future at Stamford Bridge
Thibaut Courtois has revealed that he is loving life more than ever at Chelsea and has ruled out a big-money switch to China.
The Belgium international has rediscovered his best form under Antonio Conte and has proven instrumental in their title challenge in the 2016-17 season.
Courtois has kept 13 clean sheets in 21 appearances in the current Premier League campaign to help Chelsea keep the best defensive record in the English top flight.
The west London side are eight points clear of their closest rivals Arsenal in the Premier League title race after winning 15 of their last 16 top-flight games.
Speaking to Sky Sports about his future at Chelsea, Courtois insisted that he isn’t interested in a move to China, underlining his happiness at the club.
“I have never felt so good since I arrived in Chelsea,” Courtois said.
“On the field, I am good, I make the decisive stops when it is necessary.
“Sometimes I have just one or two to do. Against Hull, it was a little more at the weekend.
“But otherwise, I try to be ready to help the team. My game has improved a lot in the last two seasons.
“I sometimes have a few moments that are very difficult to manage but I’m doing well. I feel very confident right now.
“There’s a good atmosphere in the group. Lots of jokes and banter but we work hard and enjoy it.”
Chelsea signed Courtois from Belgian outfit Genk under Andre Villas-Boas in 2011.
The west London side will make the trip to Liverpool in their next Premier League game at Anfield on Tuesday 31 January.
Chelsea will then host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on 4 February.
