Chelsea striker Diego Costa has rubbished rumors that he is unhappy in London and wants to go back to Madrid.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, the 26-year-old forward who arrived at Chelsea last summer and went on to score 20 goals in the Premier League is unhappy with life in the capital. They claimed that Costa has not been able to adapt to the food, the language, and the climate, and thus, is unsettled. Where they learned that is beyond us anyway.
Marca further reported that Costa, who doubled his wages after signing for Chelsea last summer, is even willing to take a pay-cut to return to Atletico Madrid. However, speaking to Chelsea TV after Chelsea’s post-season friendly against Sydney FC in Sydney, Costa said:
“Quite a simple answer. It’s always a bit more difficult in the first season for adaptation, but I have no reason to leave this place, I love it, the fans love me and I want to stay.” (Source: Official Chelseafc)
After playing for 40 minutes against Sydney FC, Diego Costa was substituted just as a precaution, owing to slight tightness felt in his hamstring. However, he was given the man of the match award, even though he failed to hit the net. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who shares the same agent as Costa, echoed the forward’s statement, saying he is happy with life at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho stated:
“He is the guy responsible for every single good moment in the dressing room. He is so happy; he is so funny, and he is enjoying every minute at Chelsea and people are enjoying every single minute of him.So if this is unhappiness I am happy with that. But he was not happy with that news. In his bad English I think he has to try to express how unhappy he is with this news and how happy he is at Chelsea.” (Source: Dailymail)
If one has been following Mourinho, it is quite clear that he is unhappy too. Marca editors seem to have hatched a story of their promiscuity, with no regard for any offense it may cause. If you had to define unethical journalism, look no further. Mourinho and Costa are both right to be angry, and that’s all they can do.
We believe these rumors about Costa wanting to leave Chelsea to be utterly false and baseless. Considering the fact that he has had a superb first season at Chelsea. Having won two titles, while becoming the club’s top scorer for the season with 20 goals in the Premier League, Costa is on his way to becoming a Blue stalwart.
Next time Marca comes up with a story, don’t forget to pop that soda and then continue. Till then, Keep the Blue Flag Flying High!
