Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois ready for Chelsea reunion: My departure wasn't in the best way

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is ready to face former club Chelsea in the Champions League semifinals.

Courtois made several saves against Liverpool on Wednesday night to set up a Champions League semi-final showdown against his former side.

"It will be very nice to see a lot of familiar faces and I wish there was public at Stamford Bridge because there was a lot of happy moments I had there," Courtois told BeIN Sports following the 0-0 draw at Anfield.

"Even though maybe my departure wasn't in the best way, or it was put that way, that it wasn't the best way, I only have good memories.

"Two Premier Leagues, a lot of other trophies - I'm really happy to play them, but only one can be in the final and I hope it's Real Madrid."
