Thibaut Courtois is one of the world’s best goalkeepers of this generation.
The goalkeeper is an academy graduate of his local side Genk. He played a pivotal role in their Belgian Pro League victory.
The exposure to the summit of Belgian league attracted several European clubs, but he chose Chelsea.
He is one of the very few Chelsea loanee success stories as he was immediately loaned to Atletico Madrid. However, at Atletico Madrid, he spent his most successful years.
He won Europa League title in his first season, Copa del Rey in the second and finally wrapped up his stay in Spain by winning the La Liga in a spectacular fashion. Unfortunately for the goalkeeper, he could only win the runners-up medal in Champions League that season.
After the 2013-14 season, he returned to Chelsea and replaced Petr Cech. The goalkeeper won the league and Capital One Cup in his first season but the second season was a torrid experience for him. However, he has since bounced back in the third season as he continues to make vital saves for Chelsea.
