Atletico Madrid fans have blasted new Real Madrid signing Thibaut Courtois after the Belgian goalkeeper signed for the European Champions.

Courtois established himself as one of the best shot-stoppers in the World at Vincente Calderon during his loan spell with the club.

The Belgian keeper spent three years on loan with Atletico Madrid where he won the La Liga, Copa del Rey, Europa League and the Uefa Super Cup and lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid in the 2013-14 season.

Courtois further enhanced his place as one of the World’s goalkeepers at the Stamford Bridge over the past four seasons.

However, Courtois has now tarnished his legacy in the eyes of Atletico fans, who have taken to social media to call him a snake, a rat and much worse.

Despite having a world-class goalkeeper Jan Oblak, many of Atletico fans saw Courtois’ decision to join Real Madrid as a betrayal.

One prominent Atletico fan-run Twitter account - the aptly-named @AtleticoFans - immediately sent the following tweet to Courtois, after news broke of his transfer to the Bernabeu, reminding him of what he said about Real Madrid back in 2013.

They tweeted to Madrid’s new first-choice keeper: “Hey @thibautcourtois just a little reminder of that time you stood on the Madrid town hall balcony and told Real fans to "f*** themselves up the ***". Thought you'd like to remember it.”
