Diego Costa: “In Spain they criticise me because I don’t play for Madrid or Barça”

Chelsea striker Diego Costa doesn’t accept criticism from Spanish media and he wanted to stress this last night, after he played with his national team won 2-0 over Belgium: he entered in the second half to replace injured Alvaro Morata and served the assist for the first of two goals that Manchester City’s David Silva scored against Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois:

“They criticise me a lot and if I played for Real Madrid or Barca and was a natural Spaniard they’d say I had a good game, possibly my best for the team,” said Costa.

“I didn’t score but I can be useful to the team. I participated a lot in the game and I leave here happy, unlike in other games.”
