Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois: ‘It’s great to play my 1st game at the Bridge & hear fans sing my name’ [Video]
It was the first game at Stamford Bridge for all of Chelsea’s summer signings tonight, as they’d spent the summer on tour around Europe.
Costa, Luis, Fabregas and keeper Courtois had their first taste of action in front of their home fans, and afterwards the Belgian keeper spoke to the club channel.
Courtois had been waiting a long time for this, three years to be exact, having been sent out on loan since 2011, and only tonight wearing the Chelsea shirt at the home ground.
