“When the World Cup is over, Courtois will come straight back to Stamford Bridge - end of story.” - Jose Mourinho on Thibaut Courtois

On-loan Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will head back to Stamford Bridge, insists Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian international, who is the first-choice shot-stopper of the Belgium side, which are currently taking part in the proceedings in the World Cup in Brazil, helped the Rojiblancos to two domestic trophies, namely, the 2012/13 Copa del Rey and the 2013/14 La Liga, since moving to the Spanish capital in 2011.

He was also instrumental in Atleti's recent second-place finish in the Champions League.

The 22-year-old was rumoured to be staying at the Vicente Calderon as he does not want to play second-fiddle to Petr Cech at west London, but the the former Real Madrid boss suggested otherwise.

"When the World Cup is over, Courtois will come straight back to Stamford Bridge - end of story," said the Portuguese mentor.
