Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois played in 37 league matches during the 2011-12 season. He was sent-off once. He was one of the club's star players in the 2012-13 season. He had a remarkable 2013-14 season during which he helped Atletico win La Liga title and reach the Champions League Final which the club eventually lost to city rivals Real Madrid. Courtois has been receiving rave reviews due to his stunning saves and remarkable performances. The Beglian goalkeeper has made it clear he would not return to Chelsea to serve as a backup to Petr Cech for the 2014-15 season. Belgium will rely heavily on him during the World Cup. Along with Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Manchester City's Vincent Kompany, Courtois can be considered as perhaps Belgium's most influential player.
