Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is a smart guy.
Not only illustrated by carving out a reputation for himself among the world's best goalkeepers out on loan, rather than sitting on the Chelsea bench, he is not one to spook himself.
"I have not watched the victory of Barcelona over Getafe last weekend, to be honest I preferred to play PlayStation."
It's not an addiction to FIFA, well it could be, and it's not that he's being unprofessional.
He simply feels there's no need to cause himself nightmares by watching the world's greatest attacking team scythe defences apart.
We will see if his decision pays off this weekend, when Atletico host Barcelona in La Liga on Saturday night - a crucial clash with both sides locked on 49 points.
