Eden Hazard has taken to Instagram to post an emotional farewell message to Diego Costa.
The Spaniard is departing for former side Atletico Madrid, who the Blues lock horns with on Wednesday night. Although we have already found a replacement for Costa in the shape of compatriot Alvaro Morata, his influence will undoubtedly be missed.
Costa was influential in two Premier League title wins. During the triumphant 2014/15 and 2016/17 campaigns, he found the back of the net 20 times in England’s top tier, scoring 52 league goals in total during his time in SW6.
One player who he played alongside throughout the entirety of his Chelsea career was Eden Hazard. It was often a joy watching the two combine, and it is a great shame that we will never witness it again.
There are many great memories to reminisce on, though, and Hazard has taken to Instagram to celebrate them. This is a real tear jerker for any Chelsea fan!
