Costa Reveals Truth About Chelsea Exit

Former Chelsea star Diego Costa has explained why joining the Blues in 2013 was a bad decision and revealed the real reason about why he left the Premier League giants.
 
 
Costa joined Chelsea from Atletico Madrid in the 2013-2014 and helped the club lift the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho.
 
The Spain international won the title once again in 2017, but that's when the fallout with Antonio Conte reportedly began, despite the strike netting 20 league goals.
 
"It was a very bad moment, but it wasn't my fault. People said things, but time puts everything in its place; look where the coach is, look at Conte," Costa said to Marca.
 
"I was wrong going to Chelsea, because of their way of dealing with things. Cholo [Atletico coach Diego Simeone] is a direct coach, and when he doesn't love you, it's clear and he shows it.
 
"At Chelsea it was the opposite. I had the option of returning to Atleti and when Chelsea told me to go back to training with the reserves, I was clear that I was going back to Atletico, even though there were other offers.
 
"If not, I would've stayed in Brazil with my family. I had to live my whole life with my family. I have other values that no money can buy."
 
 
Do you think Chelsea should have kept Costa instead of Conte at the time? Let us know in the comment section below.
