Mourinho: We 'have to accept UEFA's decision' on Thibaut Courtois

Shaun Botterill

In what looks to be the final word on the issue, Jose Mourinho has basically confirmed what we had suspected and assumed for some time.

Thibaut Courtois will be in the Atlético Madrid goal on Tuesday and presumably next week as well to face his parent club.  This could get interesting.

Unsurprisingly, Mourinho appeared to be in a surly mood as he faced an overcrowded roomful of Spanish and English journalists.  He shirked questions about Rui Faria and anything to do with the Premier League title race.  Nor did he want to delve any further into the Courtois situation.

On a final related note, with Eto'o not traveling, it looks like the job of trying to get one past the best (young) goalkeeper in the world will fall to home town kid Fernando Torres.

Good luck to us all.
