I’m Shocked Jose Mourinho Picked Thibaut Courtois Ahead of Petr Cech – Manchester United Legend Edwin van der Sar

 




Friday, 24th October, 2014


Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar has hailed Thibaut Courtois' progress in the game so far and expressed his surprise that the Belgian has been able to dislodge Petr Cech as the number 1 at Chelsea.

Courtois spent three seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid before linking up with Chelsea this summer and the Belgian, considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga during his stint at the Vicente Calderon, immediately took Cech's spot between the sticks.




Given Cech has been Chelsea's number 1 since his arrival at the club in 2004, Courtois' task was not easy, Van der Sar believes.

 


"When you see what he has already achieved, now you can only conclude that he has achieved great things", the Dutchman told Het Laatste Nieuws.

"I find it amazing that he was able to convince Mourinho to choose him at Chelsea as the first choice goalkeeper ahead of Cech.

"It must not have been easy pushing an icon like Cech to one side."

Cech has expressed his disappointment at warming the bench for Courtois and is expected to seek an exit from Chelsea in the January transfer window.

As for Courtois, Van der Sar believes his career is only heading in one way.

"He is definitely on the right track. His career goes ever upwards."
