Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge later today, Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis has revealed it’s frustrating Diego Costa can’t play against Chelsea.
Costa sealed a return to Atletico Madrid from Chelsea back in September but cannot play for Atletico Madrid until January.
“It is frustrating seeing him playing like an animal, but he can’t play,” said Luis, another player who joined Chelsea from Atletico Madrid before returning to Atletico Madrid.
“It’s just a month until he can play with us and he will help us a lot. I don’t have any doubts about it.
“He knows the club, he knows the way we play. He has already adapted. I know it was difficult times for him and for Chelsea. Now everybody’s happy. We want to see him play and happy again.
“Diego is a huge player for me, because he scores a lot of goals and important goals.
“He really wanted to come back to Atletico. That’s the reason he came back.
“He was happy here. He did his job really well. His most important desire was to come back.”
