Young goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is confident that his decision to sign for Chelsea will pay off, according to Sky
The Belgian stopper has been on loan at Atletico Madrid for the last two seasons where he has impressed onlookers with a string of quality performances.
And Courtois, who is seen as a long-term replacement for the Blues’ current number one Petr Cech, says he has faith in the club’s youth policy.
Courtois said: “Chelsea have the young players that maybe in two or three years’ time can win everything. I signed with Chelsea, not just because it is a big club but also because of its commitment to young players. I want to be part of Chelsea history.”
But the ex-Genk ‘keeper, who signed for Chelsea in June 2011, is philosophical about his chances of breaking into the first team this season, with another loan move looking possible.
He continued: “Chelsea have always been very fair with me and they are also smart people and they know that I need to play. I don’t know where that will be but I do know I have proved myself in the two years I have been here (in Madrid).”
