Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simone Slams Thibaut Courtois

Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simone has slammed former Chelsea Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Courtois signed for Real Madrid this summer, but so far the Belgian has endured a mixed start to life in la Liga.

The shot-stopper has spent most of his time as 2nd choice behind Keylor Navas and fans still believe that can change.

Courtois' move to Real Madrid has now gone well with Atletico fans because he spent three years on loan at the club.

And Diego Simone has now slammed Courtois by saying he can't play for Atletico Madrid now - because of Jan Oblak.

"Courtois would not be a starter at Atlético, Oblak is better,” he said.

Speaking recently, Courtois has explained regret at how he left Chelsea.

“It makes me feel sad and obviously theydon’t know all the truth,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think in March the decision was already made and I thought the club would accept it.

“Then because the transfer was closed I did not show up because I thought it better not to disturb the team and the squad.

“If I did go there maybe, I didn’t want to be toxic, so obviously it is a pity because I love Chelsea.

“I loved playing there and I am happy to have won two Premier Leagues, a league Cup and an FA Cup. Hopefully it will turn around.”

Atletico nearly lost Goalkeeper Jan Oblak to Liverpool this summer but the Reds signed Alisson from AS Roma instead.
