Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has selected his dream five-a-side team. The Belgian has selected all the players he has played with at Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.
Currently out injured till the new year, Courtois is considered one of the best in the world along with Manuel Neuer and David De Gea.
The Chelsea shot stopper has named his dream 5-a-side team, featuring Chelsea and Atletico Madrid stars.
The goalkeeper has selected himself in goal in his dream five-a-side team. He has won league titles in Belgium, Spain and England. The Belgian international was part of the Atletico team that won the La Liga title against all the odds and reached the Champions League final in 2014.
Filipe Luis was Courtois’ teammate at Atletico and then at Chelsea. The Brazilian’s move to the Stamford Bridge did not turn out as expected. But he is still one of the best left-backs in the world. Great going forward and coming back, Filipe Luis has 19 caps for Brazil.
The Atletico Madrid midfielder has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Chelsea. He is known for dictating the tempo of the game and providing a platform for the attackers to show their talent. Koke is the midfield leader at Atletico and has been a vital part of the successful side under Diego Simeone. Is he the long term heir to Xavi for Spain and perhaps Barcelona in the future?
Hazard is Courtois’ teammate for club and country. The Belgian midfielder was the best player of the Premier League last season when Chelsea won the Premier League title. He is a nightmare for the right backs in the Premier League. Currently out of form, the midfielder has been dropped by Jose Mourinho from the first team at times this season. But the interest of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid in him shows that he still is one of the most valuable players in the world.
Radamel Falcao has endured a horrible time in the last two seasons. His spells at Manchester United and Chelsea have been a disaster. But with FC Porto and Atletico Madrid, the Colombian was the best number nine in the world. He won back to back Europa League titles with Porto and Atletico. In both those Europa finals, Falcao was named the man of the match.
What do you think about this team?
