Following Diego Costa’s reported feud with Antonio Conte, and his absence from the team to play Leicester City today, former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has revealed he’s disappointed with Costa’s attitude, and has hit out at the Premier League’s top scorer.

He told Sky Sports: “I find it so strange that a £30m offer from China will have Diego like this. How can you be unhappy?

“But there’s a bigger picture than money. You’re getting paid a hell of a lot to play for Chelsea.

“He’s not on a mere 50 grand a week – that sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? – but they’re getting hugely rewarded in the Premier League.”
