On Wednesday evening, Chelsea striker Diego Costa revealed Antonio Conte had told him via text that he wasn’t part of his plans for next season.
According to Metro UK, several Chelsea players aren’t happy with the manner in which Conte handled Costa’s exit.
According to the report, some of the players believe Conte was wrong to inform Costa of his exit via a text message. They believe the decision should have been revealed in a face-to-face meeting.
Sources in Spain claim Conte’s text to Costa read: “Hi Diego, I hope you are well. Thanks for the season we spent together. Good luck for next year but you are not in my plan.”
