Diego Costa was a fiery player during his time at Chelsea. The former Blues forward was a terror to defenders, as many defenders have now confessed how much they hated playing against him.

Well, it isn’t only defenders who had a hard time against Costa, as even goalkeepers didn’t like facing the former Chelsea hitman.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper, Ben Foster, who’s currently with Championship side Watford, has named Diego Costa as one of the worst players he hated coming against.

Asked to name the player he disliked playing against the most in a Q&A on his The Cycling GK YouTube channel, Foster replied: “It’s a good question and it’s Diego Costa because he was just a filthy little rat, and he would just snarl and scratch and he wouldn’t leave you alone and he wouldn’t give you a second’s breathe.

“And do you know what, Luis Suarez was a bit like that as well. He was horrible to play against, he would kick you, he would scratch, he would do anything.

“But just pure winners, I love those type of players. You want those types of players on your team. Animals!”
