New Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, has compared his former club Chelsea to current team Madrid, the two clubs and the latter came up short in his rating.
The Belgian star joined the La Liga giant for £31m this summer, forcing Chelsea to pay a new world-record amount for a goalkeeper for his replacement Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Since his move, Courtois has played one match for Real, displacingKeylor Navas on Saturday to make his debut in Real’s 4 – 1 victory over Leganes.
Speaking after the victory, the 26-year-old aimed a few barbed comments at Chelsea, claiming that he’s playing at a higher level now.
“I get on with everyone very well, the communication with the defence is going well, even during the competition,” Courtois said.
Courtois also spoke about the differences between the Bernabeu and Stamford Bridge.
“In training, you see that the level is high. I am now experiencing on a daily basis that Sergio Ramos is the best centre-back in the world. The level [at Real Madrid] is higher than at Chelsea.” – he added.
According to him, being at a player for Real Madrid is twice as big compared to Chelsea,adding that of course, it’s a very different feeling.
