Wilkins: “Costa is not a goal threat at the moment”

Former Chelsea player and assistant coach Ray Wilkins has criticised Diego Costa, doubting both his current threat in font of goal and work rate in Wednesday’s Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev. 

Speaking on talkSport, Wilkins, who left the Chelsea coaching team in 2010 just a few months after the team had won its first double under Carlo Ancelotti, called for Jose Mourinho to drop the Spain international in favour of Loic Remy.

Wilkins said this:

“He is not a goal threat at the moment. Jose got the hump with him because there was a ball played in from the right hand side and he didn’t get across the near post. 

He went beserk at him, Mourinho, because he was not working hard enough to get into scoring positions and I thought that he was loose. I think it is time to leave him out and bring Remy in. Remy will always score a goal.”
