Imagine if it was Diego Costa who had flown into a tackle on John Stones just like Aguero did on David Luiz on Saturday? Just take a minute and imagine the reaction Costa would have gotten.
According to Robbie Savage, people would have wanted Diego Costa arrested if the Chelsea striker had made the same challenge as Manchester City‘s Sergio Aguero.
“One of the biggest cop-outs in football is the phrase ‘He’s not that sort of player’ – sorry, but anyone who commits that kind of tackle IS that kind of player,” Savage said as quoted by Metro UK.
“And pure frustration is no excuse for flying into a reckless tackle like that. It was one of the worst challenges I’ve ever seen, and don’t forget Aguero had form for clattering into David Luiz in the past. Inexcusable.
“Imagine the outcry if Diego Costa had flown into a tackle like that on, say, John Stones. People would have been calling for him to be arrested.”
