Chelsea coach Conte can only but laugh to interview Costa
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte was Friday afternoon, just laugh when he, a press conference was confronted with a new candid interview of Diego Costa, who is in discord lives with his coach and club.
“This is great, really great,” said Conte about the interview, after his first laugh was erupted. “But I can assure you that everyone at Chelsea knows exactly what last season with Costa happened.”
The 28-year-old attacker currently resides still in his native Brazil, after he earlier this summer by text message of Conte was told that he no longer needed to be the champion of England.
Costa, who refuses to train with the reserves of Chelsea and therefore a hefty fine has been given, said Friday in an interview with ESPN Brazil that Chelsea restrains to return to his old club Atletico Madrid because the ‘Blues’ a better bid hope to get from another club.
“Chelsea has given me at different clubs offered, but I am very clear”, says Costa, who in mid-2014 for 32 million pounds (35 million euros) moved from Atletico to Chelsea and the last three seasons was good for 52 goals in 89 Premier League matches.
“I have this against Chelsea said that if I was not in the plans of the manager to avoid, that I my next club will choose. I don’t want it the choice for me to make, only to make some more money to be able to receive.”

According to Costa, the current stalemate is not his fault. “If it were up to me, then I would now be playing for the first team. It now takes a month. A vacation is fun, but I am a bit done with it.”
Conte responded to the interview “funny” to name a few. “But I have no interest to have more to say about this matter. This is behind me.”
Steve Atkins, the persman of Chelsea that in addition to Conte, was seized then. “Antonio nor the club will continue to react to this situation. Our position is clear: We want to publicly, not in go. We have said that he is the player Chelsea should return to the training and that is all we are going to say.”
Chelsea suffered last weekend in the first round of the Premier League without Costa a painful 2-3 defeat against Burnley. The team of Conte goes to Sunday from 17.00 hours Dutch time on a visit to Tottenham Hotspur.
