'I only have good memories' - Courtois looking forward to Chelsea reunion despite acrimonious departure

Thibaut Courtois is looking forward to being reunited with Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals, despite the Real Madrid goalkeeper admitting that his departure from Stamford Bridge "wasn't in the best way".

In the summer of 2018, having previously spent time on loan in Spain with Atletico Madrid, the Belgium international goalkeeper made it clear that he wanted out of west London.

His wish was eventually granted, but Courtois will be heading back to familiar surroundings this season after helping Real past Premier League title holders Liverpool and into a last-four clash with Chelsea.
