Manchester United playmaker Adnan Januzaj has sent Thibaut Courtois a good luck message on Twitter after the Chelsea goalkeeper underwent surgery on his right knee.

Januzaj, who is currently on a season-long loan with Borussia Dortmund, tweeted: “Courage À toi! 🙏👍 @thibautcourtois” - which translates into English as “Good luck! “thibautcourtois”.

Courtois is expected to be out of action for three months, according to BBC Sport, and losing the services of their first-choice goalkeeper for such a substantial period of time is undoubtedly a major blow for Chelsea, who have endured a tough start to the 2015-16 campaign.

Jose Mourinho, in his pre-match press conference on Friday, admitted Courtois’ injury was a “big blow” for the Blues.

The Portuguese coach hailed Courtois as the world’s best goalkeeper, and Asmir Begovic - who signed for Chelsea in an £8 million deal from Stoke City earlier this summer - now has the unenviable task of filling the void left by the Belgium international.

Courtois responded to Januzaj’s message of support by tweeting: “Thanks bro!”.

The 23-year-old also thanked the wider public for their tweets, by posting a picture of himself in his hospital bed, alongside the message: “Thank you everyone for the support and the good wishes! I will work hard to recover as soon as I can! 💪🏼 #cfc”

Begovic transfer now looks like smart business

Mourinho will now be mightily relieved that he managed to convince Begovic to come to Stamford Bridge as a replacement for Petr Cech.

Begovic, meanwhile, will use these next three months as an unexpected opportunity to prove he’s good enough to put pressure on Courtois for the position of first-choice goalkeeper at Chelsea.
