Blues striker hints of possible Atletico return.
4 goals and large period on the bench could see Costa exit struggling Chelsea.
Last season the arrival of Diego Costa to the Premier League changed Chelsea’s dimensions and ultimately won them the title. This season and it’s quite a juxtaposition for the striker. Poor form and a lack of goals has seen Costa benched for the majority of the campaign.
In a recent interview the Spanish international revealed his love for his former team. ‘You never know — look how well Filipe Luis is doing now. Life is full of surprises. I always wish Atletico the best and I always follow them and support them from afar.”
Diego Costa who is in every right a top player may just be suffering a dip in form after the explosive introduction to the Premier League last season. If so, the striker doesn’t have long to rectify the issue as Chelsea are reportedly looking into transfer market to strengthen their attack. Of the names mentioned Jamie Vardy stands out with the most goals scored in the Premier League this season.
Diego Costa claims the bib incident is in the past.
“I made a mistake, but my relationship with Mourinho is amazing and we get on really well.
“There are things you need to control, but the bib thing was an impulse. I have to improve a bit. The start of the season has not been good for me – not in how I have played nor in goals.”
