After the important Premier League win on Saturday at Stamford Bridge vs Watford, Thibaut Courtois admits this was the first step to avoid Antonio Conte will suffer the same “fate” as José Mourinho who was sacked by Chelsea few months after winning the Premier League title.
“We are ready to fight for the coach,” – Courtois told the Evening Standard . – I remember what happened two years ago under Jose Mourinho and things started to be said, there were stories about the dressing room without knowing what was happening. In 2015 we wanted to fight as well but the game didn’t turn out well for us, there was too much bad luck. Sometimes different things happened. But we are showing we want to fight again now, firstly as a group of players. We want to win games. Some of us remember what happened two years ago and we don’t want the same thing to happen.”
