Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has said he hoped his team take revenge on the English Premier club, Chelsea FC who got them evicted in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League last season.

Ahead of Real Madrid versus Chelsea’s Wednesday’s UCL quarter-final first leg at Stamford Bridge, Courtois expressed delight in facing his former club again and said he hopes he wins over them this time around.

The former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid shorts stopper said this while speaking on his YouTube channel, Thibaut Talks.

In his words:

“It’s very special. Last year we already played in the semi-finals and lost, so hopefully, this time, there will be a victory.”

The Belgian goalkeeper while speaking further about the game, said that it would be different this year because their fans will be available and there may be some negative gestures from them to him due to his departure from the club some seasons ago. He added:

“It will be different because there will be a crowd, and there may be some whistles in protest at my departure, but I hope people remember the beautiful moments of winning two leagues [and] the FA Cup.”

He, however, said the London based club will always be his team because of how they helped him develop into the kind of goalkeeper he is today, adding that they signed him when he was very young and allowed him to play for Atletico and then played and win the Premier League with them. He said further:

“I still have friends there, and it’s always a pleasure to play against them. Apologise for my saves? No, it’s been almost four years now, and I defend my club.

Courtois reiterated that he obviously has a fondness for the Champions League defending champion because he’ll congratulate the people he knows in the club but when they play against him he definitely wants to win over them.

“Obviously, I have a fondness for Chelsea, and if I see them win a title, I congratulate the people I know, but when they play against me I hope we win.”
