Thibaut Courtois: Petr Cech pushed me to a higher level at Chelsea... he is one of the best goalkeepers in the worldBy BOBRICKY 12:08 Fri, 12 Jun 2015 Comments
Thibaut Courtois has thanked Petr Cech for raising his standard and effectively ending the Czech goalkeeperâ€™s career at Chelsea.
The 23-year-old took the No 1 gloves off the man ten years his senior last season and restricted Cech to just seven Premier League appearances.
Cech is wanted by Arsenal among a number of other clubs and Courtois said he could understand why he is seeking a move away.

â€˜When you look at the quality of Petr there is no doubt that he is one of the best in the world. Our relationship in training was really good,â€™ said Courtois.
â€˜I think we pushed each other to a higher level and I think we have seen in the games for Chelsea that if I was not playing he was playing and he saved the team as well.
