Antonio Conte has no interest in knowing how he’s doing, if it were up to him Diego Costa would have already left Chelsea, but there is another Premier League manager who wanted to know how the Spain international is holding up these difficult for him days.
Jose has called me, direct to my phone, just to check I am OK and to see how I am. He wished me good luck
Costa told the Daily Mail, talking about Manchester United’s boss Jose Mourinho.
I never had any problems with Jose, we have a strong relationship. Everyone was very sad when things didn’t work out in the end for him at Chelsea
the 28-year-old said, before revealing that he is in close touch with some Chelsea players, who, as he said, love him, and are missing him.
I am always talking with the boys – particularly Cesc Fabregas, David Luiz and Willian. We have banter over WhatsApp. They ask how I am. They really love me for the person I am. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be saying they miss me and love me
Costa said. Two August weeks have already passed and the former Atletico Madrid striker still doesn’t know where he will be playing this season, with his relationship with Chelsea at its lowest point, after his lawyer started – a few days ago – a legal proceeding to have him freed from the Blues as soon as possible.
