Chelsea starlet continues attack on Liverpool goalkeeper

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois remains perturbed by recent comments made by Liverpool’s number one Simon Mignolet.

Mignolet stated earlier this month that he hopes to dislodge Courtois as Belgium’s first-choice ‘keeper at the 2014 World Cup finals.

However, Courtois took this as a personal attack and remains irritated by his compatriot’s comments, two weeks after advising Mignolet to “stay humble and respectful”.

The 21-year-old, who has been on loan with Atletico Madrid for the past two-and-a-half seasons, was quoted by Sport Wereld as saying: "It shows that the player (Mignolet) doesn't accept the choice of the coach, and that he shows no respect for the current number one."

Courtois is expected to be the first-choice goalkeeper of Belgium head coach Marc Wilmots this summer after another stunning season at the Vicente Calderon.

However, Mignolet has enjoyed an impressive debut campaign at Anfield and is four years older than Courtois, who has yet to make a single appearance for his parent club.

That is expected to change next season, though, with Jose Mourinho keen to bring the world-class youngster back to Stamford Bridge.
