Enrique Cerezo said it himself, ‘it’s a complicated matter’, but no matter what, he is still hopeful that Diego Costa will return to Atletico Madrid, one way or another, sooner or later.
He has a contract with another club, it’s a complicated matter. We are taking things calmly. But as long as Chelsea do not agree to his transfer, Costa will be a Chelsea player
the Atletico Madrid president told Cadena Ser, very cautious and counting his words. Even so, when he was asked if he is optimistic or pessimistic regarding Costa’s return to the club, he didn’t hesitate to answer
I am always optimistic
confident that one way or another the two clubs will reach an agreement beneficial to both sides, and of course the player himself.
Cerezo was also asked about Costa’s… fitness, which has come under scrutiny after recent photos showed him with a good number of extra kilos.
On holiday it is normal to get a little fat, but I understand Costa is a professional
the Atletico president said. The Spain international is in his native Brazil for weeks now, rejecting Chelsea’s calls to return to England and start training in London.
