Thibaut Courtois left Chelsea with the club fans fuming over his attitude in the final days at the club, with many calling him ‘snake’ while others simply said he betrayed the club as he resisted calls to return to training after his post World Cup holidays.
The former Chelsea goalkeeper, in his first words at Real Madrid has already began making comments that will anger his old fans.
Courtois reveals he has never kissed a badge after completing the move to join Real Madrid this summer. The Belgium international kissed the Real Madrid badge at his unveiling at the Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday after he signed a six-year deal.
I know at the moment they are not too happy, but I hope they remember what was achieved. I needed a new challenge. Now I’m at a club that I have always wanted to be at. I don’t think I’ve ever kissed a badge before.

Subsequently, Courtois added “I’m one of yours and I can’t wait to wear the badge” as he prepares to don the famous white shirt at the Bernabeu.
His words will not loosen the anger Chelsea fans currently have towards the goalkeeper after his departure from the club this summer. He never seemed at home at the Bridge, and this proves it.
