Shed wrote:Yea but even still, most players in his situation at least make the effort to trot out the "I'm just being patient, trying to earn my place, want to play first team football so I can impress the manager, etc." line. He just basically says, 'meh. I'm too good to sit on the bench. I'll take my time deciding what I want to do. If the club want to sell me whatever." etc. etc.


Mind you, this sort of self-importance seems to be quite common among the Belgians at the club. Does my nut in.

I think it's different when it's somebody who is arguably top 5 in the world in their position. He is far too good for any bench and should be playing week in week out. He's going to want to keep getting better and nail that #1 spot in the NT before the world cup.

Hazard has an ego. Courtois is a self-important twit. At least in this interview.

Thibaut Courtois - success at Atletico has made Chelsea want him even more. And that is a problem for him.

Atletico Madrid willing to pay whatever it takes to sign Thibaut Courtois, Diego Simeone says:
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone says is willing to pay whatever it costs to keep Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois at the club beyond the end of the season
http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/455239/Atletico-Madrid-willing-to-pay-whatever-it-takes-to-land-Chelsea-s-Thibault-Courtois

Asked if he would spend €26m to keep hold of Courtois, Simeone said: "Definitely."

"For me anything paid for Courtois would be cheap."

"He's a young guy who has a huge future and is on track to becoming one of the best goalkeepers in the world."
"Signing a goalkeeper of his caliber would be a big step, but it will not be easy."

"It depends on what Courtois wants, his club (Chelsea) knows our needs, but it is not up to us, because he is not our player."

To Chelsea? A lot. The club aren't in need of money, the player is the natural replacement for Cech and would be ready to walk into that role whenever the club decide it, etc. No reason at all to sell.

Thibaut Courtois hits out at compatriot, Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet:
On-loan Atletico shotstopper Thibaut Courtois has hit back at fellow Belgian keeper Simon Mignolet after the latter said he was aiming to take the 21-year-old's spot in the national team by the time the World Cup comes around in June
http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/458175/Chelsea-keeper-Courtois-retaliates-to-Liverpool-stopper-Mignolet-s-Belgium-claims

"In Spain, I hear no goalkeeper saying they're aiming for the place of Casillas."

"Not De Gea, not Valdes, not Reina. It's the opposite - they back Casillas."

"Simon can say whatever he wants, but I think I've already saved enough points for Belgium and I'm playing good games for Atletico. He has to stay humble and respectful."

Courtois should perhaps not say anything either.. He's adding to the fire.
