Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho completely blanked Atletico Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois in the tunnel [Video]

Chelsea loanee Thibaut Courtois was at the centre of a controversy regarding a contract clause ahead of the Champions League semi-final between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.

The big Belgian stopper, on loan at Atletico Madrid from Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, reportedly had a clause in his contract stating that he couldn’t play against Chelsea unless Atletico stumped up a considerable sum of money.

UEFA overruled it and Courtois was hugely important in Atletico’s 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge this week.
