Courtois Happy With New Goalkeeping Coach

share on:

Chelsea shotstopper, Thibaut Courtois has stated he is now happy with the coaching situation at the club, after enduring a difficult 2015/16 season.

The Belgium international, had a falling out with Christophe Lollichon, Cech’s mentor. Lollichon was replaced this summer by Gianluca Spinelli.

The 24-year-old played his first full match of pre-season in a 3-1 International Champions Cup win against Milan and spoke optimistically after the victory in Minneapolis.

“It is going very well,” Courtois said. “There’s a new goalkeeping coach and it works really well. I feel well and I think that you could see that today, when I made some very good saves. So I think he’s done well.”

John Terry, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta were familiar faces in Chelsea’s back four for the keeper to work with but he praised the performance of the youngster Aina, who has emerged as a potential starter ahead of the new Premier League season.

“He did well. He has speed, he trained with the first team and has good quality,” Courtois added. “He needs to adapt a bit to the level but I think he is doing well. He’s taken his chance and did well.

“He’ll be one for the future. It will be a hard choice for the manager to chose who will play but it is good to see a young prospect from the academy.”
