Thibaut Courtois: Petr Cech exit from Chelsea understandable


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has urged reserve goalkeeper Petr Cech to stay at Stamford Bridge but admits he understands why the Czech wants to leave the club.

The 33-year-old lost his regular place at Chelsea after the arrival of 23-year-old Courtois and is expected to leave the club to join rivals Arsenal this summer.

But the Belgian insists that Cech can still be an asset to Chelsea.

"Petr is a fantastic guy and I worked really well with him," Courtois is quoted as saying by

"When you look at Petr's quality there is no doubt that he is one of the best in the world and I think we pushed each other to a higher level.

"I think we have seen in the games for Chelsea that if I was not playing he was playing and he saved the team as well. So I think it was a very good year for Chelsea.

"If he stays I am happy. If he leaves I understand as well."
