Courtois produced another excellent performance against Barcelona last night in his side’s Champions League quarter final against Barcelona, with Atletico coming away from the Camp Nou with a 1-1 draw.
Atletico manager Diego Simeone believes the 21-year-old will only get better, while Barca boss Gerardo Martino admitted that Courtois looked like ‘one of the best goalkeepers in the world’.
“He has improved a lot in the two and half years that he has been with us,” Simeone told reporters,
“He needs to keep getting better but it is clear that he is destined for big things.”
