Diego Costa sends sarcastic message to Conte in Atletico shirt

by -

Diego Costa made Chelsea fans upset again by posting a video on Instagram where he was wearing an Atletico Madrid shirt and was making sarcastic comments on Blues manager Antonio Conte.

The Brazilian born star was excused from Chelsea pre-season since he broke up with Conte in the end of the past campaign: the Italian boss told him he was not in his plans anymore and Costa asked to leave the club, not hiding his desire to join back Atletico Madrid, the club where he was playing before signing for the Blues.

The Spanish forward – still under a Chelsea contract- is continuing his break in Brazil and last night he posted a live video of a party he was at in Lagarto, Brazil, on Instagram.

He then turned the camera on himself to reveal he was dancing in an Atletico Madrid shirt.

Plenty of followers on Instagram reacted to the shirt, including Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas, who posted a laughing emoji at the sight of the top.


Costa then responded to his fellow Spanish international, who is gearing up for next season with the Blues, by telling him to ‘give Conte a hug’, a comment followed by a big laugh, to underline it was done in a sarcastic way.


The 28-year-old is sure to complete an Atletico Madrid return but it remains to be seen whether he can join them given the Spanish side’s current transfer embargo.
