Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois: This is why I left Chelsea...

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he quit Chelsea as he wanted to 'compete' for the No1 sptot again.

Courtois has hailed Real's strength in depth, citing it as one of the reasons for his move from Chelsea.

"The only difference is that we now have confidence and momentum," he said.

"Before this run we did not have any luck, goals came at the wrong moments, the ball would have hit the post instead of going in, things like that.

"My run of games? I know how competitive this club is and how difficult it is for the coach to choose in positions in a lot of games, that is why I came here.

"We have a great spirit in the dressing room and we push each other on, we all get on very well and it is a good situation for us all."
