Courtois Sad After Chelsea Fans’ Anger at Real Move

Thibaut Courtois admits he feels “sad” about how some Chelsea fans have turned against him following his transfer to Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old was at Chelsea for seven seasons – though the first three were spent on loan at Atletico Madrid – before leaving for Real in a £35m deal over the summer.

The Belgium international revealed he made his decision to leave in March and explained that is part of the reason he delayed reporting back to Chelsea following the World Cup.

When asked about some Chelsea fans feeling angry about the manner of his exit, Courtois said: “It makes me feel sad and obviously they don’t know all the truth.

“I think in March the decision was already made and I thought the club would accept it.

“Then because the transfer was closed I did not show up because I thought it better not to disturb the team and the squad.

“If I did go there maybe, I didn’t want to be toxic, so obviously it is a pity because I love Chelsea.”
