Dad: Courtois and Cech cannot "cohabitat" at Chelsea

The father of Thibaut Courtois says any return to Chelsea will depend on Petr Cech. Courtois is currently on-loan with Atletico Madrid, but Dad, Thierry, says he and Cech cannot "cohabitat" at Chelsea.

"Chelsea have a good goalkeeper in Cech, so cohabitation with both is not possible," he said.

"Alternating between the two is possible on paper but this is not what we want. This is not a situation we want.

"For now, we expect to discuss with Chelsea but it is impossible for Courtois to join a club to be their number two, and the conclusion is the same for Petr Cech.

"Every week he dazzles us. He produces big performances and his team continues to amaze and produce good results, in part thanks to him. This is a big success. it goes beyond our expectations.

"He is very happy. He does not bother about tomorrow, and plays it game by game and works every day to improve. He is happy to be appreciated by his teammates and the staff."
