Chelsea boss admits one of two Blues stars could depart

Goalkeeper - Petr CechChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are still none the wiser as to who will start the season as number one goalkeeper away at Burnley.

Jose Mourinho admits either Petr Cech or Thibaut Courtois could well be considering their futures at the club shortly, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Courtois has returned from a three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid where he went on to establish himself as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, whilst Cech has been the first choice at Stamford Bridge for a decade.

Mourinho admits he faces a tough selection dilemma which is sure to leave one goalkeeper unhappy.

“The best way for me to work is to think pragmatically, in a cold way, forget a little bit try to hide the emotions around these situations and decide what I think is the best for the team,’ he said at the Blues’ press conference on Friday.

“I don’t tell you because they don’t know. The team doest know. They will know at the same time all of them.

“My opinion with all the respect to fantastic goalkeepers around the world, I think Chelsea has two of the three best goalkeepers in the world.

“This is something unique. Is it a problem for me? A great problem. They are both fantastic goalkeepers. It’s a problem every manager in every club would like to have.”
