Diego Costa has launched an astonishing and damaging attack on Chelsea and Antonio Conte following the pair’s issues off-the-field.
The striker has also admitted that he made a mistake in joining the club. Diego has told of how he has regrets about his time at west London.
Costa’s career at Stamford Bridge came to an end last summer when Conte told him via a text message that he was no longer needed at Stamford Bridge – something Chelsea fans find hard to fathom.
The 29-year-old was reunited with Atletico Madrid in a deal thought to be worth around £57million and has started to enjoy life back in the Spanish capital.
Costa slammed Conte for what had happened and took a dig over his former boss and his current unemployment status.
Speaking to Marca, he said: “I was wrong going to Chelsea because of their way of dealing with things.
“It was a very bad moment, but it wasn’t my fault.
“People said things, but time puts everything in its place. Look where the coach is now, look at Conte.
“(Diego) Simeone is a direct coach, and when he doesn’t love you, it’s clear and he facilitates it.
“At Chelsea, it was the opposite.”
