The Diego Costa saga is one that has gone on for so long, and if we can trace the roots, what’s happening now is only a product of the January transfer saga that ensued between the Spain international and the Chelsea boss.
Former Liverpool and Leicester City striker Stan Collymore has revealed that Costa doesn’t care about Chelsea but he’s only interested in getting paid.
He wrote on his column in the Mirror: “Chelsea can’t have any complaints with Diego Costa because they knew what they were getting when they signed him.
“Here’s a player who chose to be Spanish for the sake of a European passport and the sort of person — like Floyd Mayweather Junior and Conor McGregor — who doesn’t give a damn about the damage he does to his sport as long as he gets paid.
“They need to get rid as soon as possible because he’s absolute poison.
“People say, ‘We’ll miss him’, but, no, we won’t. I won’t.
“I won’t miss the shadiness, I won’t miss him skulking around after digging someone and I won’t miss him saying he has been treated like a criminal, which is utter tosh.
“Chelsea have danced with the devil and now they’re paying for it.”
