Thibaut Courtois is trying hard to settle down in London, but it’s not that easy. London is a mega city. It’s hard to move around, and the weather doesn’t suit everyone as well. It’s no wonder he misses his great life at Madrid.
Here is what he had to say about his life at Chelsea Football Club, London.
“London traffic means I can`t make any progress in my car. I need an hour to do the 18 miles between my house and the training complex – morning and night.”
“On my first day I even hit the kerb twice, although I am now used to driving on the left.”
“London is a great city but I miss the beautiful weather of Madrid.”
“I will take advantage of being on leave until Wednesday to enjoy the Spanish sun as well as sort out my house move.” (Source: Vital Football)
We hope he can adjust to the conditions as soon as possible and consistently performs at the highest level of English football.
