Chelsea have today announced on the club’s official website that Diego Costa is on his way back to Atletico Madrid.
Costa will be missed both on and off the pitch. On it, he was is unplayable. A battering ram with little regard for defenders standing in his way.
His prolific goal-scoring elevated him to heights he would have previously not thought possible. It speaks for itself, he is one of the best centre-forwards on the planet, and having won three league titles in the past four years, his employers have been reaping the rewards.
It’s not only on the field where his teammates will have benefited from having him around, either. Costa is also quite the character off it. You would be fooled into thinking the stern-faced, short-tempered, bullish figure represents Costa the person, but it doesn’t that’s Costa the player.
Ball Street tweeted out the video of some of Costa’s funniest off-the-field antics. He will be dearly missed.
Costa’s antics – includes playing with JT’s bum, pouring Lucozade in his eyes, threatening journos with fire extinguisher & stealing Conte. pic.twitter.com/35TTGFIgW6
