28-year-old Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was mad at him after he told Conte he wanted to return to Atletico Madrid.
However, a move to Atletico Madrid failed to materialise and Costa had to meet Conte to clear the air.
“The relationship with Conte didn’t start well because on arrival, I told him I wanted to go to Atletico,” Costa told Spanish radio station El Larguero.
“He got angry with me, almost didn’t look at me; I would have done the same.
“When Atletico did not wait for me, I went with the tail between my legs to talk to Conte.”
