Courtois Wants Atletico Madrid Return

share on:

Thibaut Courtois has admitted he is looking to return to Atletico Madrid and could opt against signing a new contract at Chelsea.

The Belgium shotstopper signed for Chelsea from Genk, but was immediately loaned out to Atletico for three seasons.

The 24-year-old won La Liga in 2014, copa del rey in 2013 and Europa league in 2012 with the capital club.

And Courtois has since revealed he cried when his time at the club came to end and has expressed his desire to seal a reunion with Los Colchoneros in the future.

“I feel half Spanish,” Courtois told Marca. “When I said goodbye I had a bad time. I had cold blood, it was not easy. I cried.

“Atletico is a family club. I still feel their love.”

Asked if he specifically wants to return to Atletico, Courtois replied: “Yes, but not only because of the club, but how Madrid is and the whole country.

“From the first minute I fell in love with Spain for its people, lifestyle, food… I still eat dinner and then have an afternoon nap, most of the television I see is Spanish… I am half Spanish.”
