Diego Costa sits among the fans

by -

Usually players are accused of living on a different planet from football fans and the people who love them.

But yesterday Chelsea striker Diego Costa proved that football players are closer to their supporters than people might think.

The Spaniard sat amongst the Stamford Bridge crowd next to his twin brother, watching the 1-1 draw with Liverpool amongst the home faithful.

He was excited as Chelsea supporters were, laughing and taking selfies all around as you can see from this Vine.

Despite being escorted to “safer ground” by stewards towards the end of the first half, the 26-year old was not to be denied the chance to mingle with fans. He returned to his seat in the second half.
