While a goalkeeper’s role in football requires him to keep the ball away from his vicinity as far as possible, it is surely a treat to watch a keeper displaying some talent on the ball every now and then.
We have often seen the likes of Bayern’s Manuel Neuer and Barcelona’s Ter Stegen leave their goal lines to pull off brilliant moves with their feet, but Chelsea’s training recently saw some similar skills that would have left even the Germans dumbfounded.
Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois ripped apart Diego Costa during training with a stunning display of mad tekkers that left the striker looking like a helpless kid lost in a mall.
Since not many players have been able to pull off this move (referred to as a backwards elastico) in a match before, Courtious clearly proved that Hazard isn’t the only skilled Belgian playing at Chelsea.
