With Arsenal and Liverpool having been linked with second-choice Chelsea goalkeeper, manager Jose Mourinho has stated that the long-serving shot-stopper is still important for the Blues, reports the Express.
“When Courtois was injured against Arsenal and Petr Cech comes to play on minute 20, I wasn’t worried about a change of goalkeeper. Obviously he wants to play, so I have to feed the natural ambition of somebody who is a top goalkeeper. We like him, we respect him and we need him,” said Mourinho.
