Chelsea captain John Terry has paid tribute to manager Jose Mourinho for managing to keep both Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech happy this season despite the pair of them dipping in and out of the side, the Daily Express reports.

Coutois took up the cudgels against PSG in the Champions League this week, where he produced a string of fine saves to keep the score down to just one.
But Cech has come into the side at various points to make a case for himself after initially losing his starting spot to the Belgian.
And Terry has admitted that he is unsure how Jose Mourinho has managed to keep the two happy with the current set up, but is glad that he has managed to find a formula.
“Thibaut is different class,” said Terry.
“It’s unlucky for Big Pete because he made two unbelievable saves from Romelu Lukaku against Everton last week.
“But he has been unbelievably professional this season. I’ve seen a lot of players throw their toys out of the pram. But he’s been different class , and that’s been important.
“The manager stresses the importance of the team coming first. They’re both there for the whole squad. Both of them have been excellent.
“We’ve got the two best goalkeepers in the world – both fighting for one place. It’s difficult. You can’t keep them both happy.
“The manager manages to do it, I don’t know how. Obviously they both want to play all the time. The two of them are at the top of their games. Rotating them is a tough job. I’d rather that was the manager’s decision.
