Mourinho admits “Chelsea fans will be happy” as he wants world class duo at club

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has declared a desire to keep both Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech at Chelsea this season.

The Chelsea manager watched Cech make an impressive return from a serious shoulder injury in a pre-season friendly against RZ Pellets WAC.

But Cech faces a serious threat to his place for the first time in a decade at Stamford Bridge, with Courtois ready to take control of the number one spot.

As quoted on the Daily Mail website, Mourinho said: “My situation for the season is fantastic.

“To have Cech and Courtois, the best young goalkeeper in the world and one of the top three or five experienced keepers, for me and Chelsea it’s perfect.

“There’s no story. One will play and Chelsea will be in safe hands for good because both are very good players.

“But the Chelsea supporters will be happy and they’re more important than players. If supporters have Cech or Courtois they will be happy because they know we’re in safe hands.

“The window is the window but I’m so happy with the situation. For a coach the problem is when you don’t have good players. Then we’re in trouble.

“We have to make decisions but we’re paid to make them and I’m really happy with the situation.”
