Young stopper pleased with Atleti loan.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois claims that he feels as though he is improving all of the time and that is down to being given a regular run of games with Atletico Madrid, Sky Sports reports.
the 21-year-old initially signed for the Blues in 2011, but is now spending his third consecutive season on loan with Atleti, and has just helped Belgium qualify for their first major tournament in 12 years.
Courtois has emerged as one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe during his time in the Spanish capital, and his displays have won the praise of Barcelona president Sandro Rosell, who declared his admiration for him earlier this month.
Courtois maintains that he is happy at Atletico, where he feels he has become one of the top five goalkeepers in the world.
“I am in my best form and I feel that I am among the five best goalkeepers in the world,” he is quoted by AS.
“I’ve grown a lot at Atletico, especially last season when we won the European Super Cup and the Copa del Rey.
“I’ve made great progress, especially in terms of speed, reflexes and experience. ”
However, the Belgium international was more guarded over where his future may lie.
“I want to play, I will not be sitting on the bench. At Atletico I feel great and it allows me to play in the Champions League,” he added.
