Roy Keane has been discussing the Diego Costa situation, and as you may expect with the stern Irishman, he hasn’t pulled any punches.
Keane earned himself a reputation as somewhat of a hard-man during his playing days, and that hasn’t changed during his stints as a manager, nor as a pundit.
The Manchester United legend has now been talking about the situation surrounding Costa at Stamford Bridge. The Spaniard has not featured for Chelsea since May, and it seems extremely unlikely that he will ever do so again.
The Telegraph quote Keane, who suggests that the Premier League champions are better off without having Costa in the side:
“They are better off without him, the guy is obviously big trouble.”
Keane went on to add that if a player is not prepared to work hard and fight for the club, then you should get rid, as the Telegraph report:
“I know he has done well for them, but he looks to me to be a bit of a balloon. Get rid of him. Have players at your club that want to be there.”
It’s hard to disagree with Keane’s words. We’re not entirely sure what he means by ‘balloon’ but it is bizarrely fitting. Maybe that should be our new nickname for our combative Spanish centre-forward!
