Antonio Conte Explains Decision To Let Thibaut Courtois Take Penalty Against Arsenal

Chelsea v Arsenal - The FA Community ShieldThibaut Courtois’ penalty miss during the Community Shield shootout against Arsenal proved one of the biggest talking points from Chelsea’s loss on Sunday.

The Belgian stopper was allowed to take the Blues’ second spot kick at the end of the match, which ended 1-1 in regular time, and missed quite sensationally by blasting way over the top.

According to 90min, Antonio Conte faced some of criticism for his decision. But following the game, he told the press that Courtois is one of the best penalty kick takers in training.

“Courtois is one of the best players to kick a penalty,” the manager explained (H/T Express).

“If you have a player who shows you during the training sessions to be one of the best then you pick him to shoot the penalty.

“Don’t forget that also Morata is a forward and he did the same.”
