It’s it the title, so no need to really ask is there?
Diego Costa has again continued his public attack on Chelsea manager Antonio Conte following his “moment of madness”, with the striker still clearly upset about the text message he received from his manager informing him he had no future at Stamford Bridge.
Costa question the respect of Conte and the Chelsea board, with the Spain international far from happy with learning his fate through text messages from the Italian manager.
“Conte’s text? It was a moment of madness,” Costa told MC News. “It can happen, but I thought it was disrespectful.
“I always asked to speak face to face with the coach and the board. I never sent [them] text messages, so it shows what kind of person he is.
“If something makes me sad about this situation, it’s [the fans’] affection as they’d always supported me, even during the delicate moments.
“If I’d been in the team for three years, it was for them and the dressing room, which was very much united. It was a great experience.”
And despite Atletico’s ban, Costa made it clear why he will only join Atletico for the second time in his career.
“I already have in mind where I want to play and I’ve made it very clear,” he said. “[Spain’s] a country with which I identify a lot due to the climate and the people.
“I fell in love with Madrid. We have to wait for the right moment.”
