Diego Costa is the latest bad boy in the Premier League, after a reported showdown with manager, Antonio Conte.
Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas believes Chelsea’s title rivals will be happy with the news, with the belief that it could destabilise Chelsea’s form in the race for the title.
“The way that Antonio Conte seems to be dealing with this situation is sport on,” Jenas told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“But I can see Mourinho, Pochettino & Klopp thinking ‘this is what we’ve been waiting for’.
“We’ve been waiting for a bump in the road for this unbelievable Chelsea side this season.
“It’s been all smooth sailing, no injuries, no problems, winning game after game and now this.
“It seems to be another bid from China for another top player and it seems to be rocking the boat of another top club.
“It’s a common theme that we keep seeing at the minute.”
