Thibaut Courtois insists he is not surprised fellow Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is considering an exit from Stamford Bridge in January.
The 32-year-old has lost his place to Courtois after he returned from his loan spell with Spanish champions Atletico Madrid during the summer.
And there has been talks that he could be snapped up by PSG and Real Madrid in the January window.
Now Courtois has stated he knows why Cech may want to leave the club.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “As a goalkeeper you want to play. If I was in that situation where I didn’t play a lot, then I would leave too.”
