Chelsea striker Diego Costa has spent the off-season in his native Brazil after being told by Chelsea boss Antonio Conte that he wasn’t part of his plans for the new season.
In an interview with Daily Mail, the 28-year-old striker revealed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho called him this summer to check if he was OK.
“Jose has called me, direct to my phone, just to check I am OK and to see how I am. He wished me good luck,” Costa said.
“I never had any problems with Jose, we have a strong relationship. Everyone was very sad when things didn’t work out in the end for him at Chelsea.”
