Departing Thibaut Courtois thanks Atletico Madrid & fans on Twitter for ‘three beautiful years’

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is leaving Atletico Madrid and has thanked the club and its fans through his Twitter account for ‘three beautiful years’.

Courtois had been a perfect for Atletico from day one and was pivotal to the club’s success in that three year period with arguably his best performance coming against Real Madrid in 2013’s Copa Del Rey final.

Had Courtois won last season’s Champions League then he would have almost completed a clean sweep of trophies during his time at the club.

He leaves having added a La Liga medal to his collection and with his status as a legend of the club cemented. Now he will be Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper and those who aren’t overly familiar with his ability will see what a loss he is to Atletico.
