Chelsea balls: Costa ‘punched himself’ out of the match and dark humour
The Metro hates football. To it the game is simply about getting clicks. Why else would you describe an injury to a professional player as “hilarious”? Diego Costa was injured playing for Chelsea at Stoke City in the League Cup. This is how the Metro reported the fact:
A man getting injured at work is “hilarious“.
The paper tells us:
Chelsea striker Diego Costa was hospitalised and is facing a spell out injured during the Capital One Cup clash with Stoke.
Costa is in hospital. Hahahahahaha. Jamie Sanderson finds that “hilarious“.
Costa came off after 32 minutes with a rib problem and Sky Sports say he was taken to hospital, and it’s now claimed he faces missing the clash with Liverpool at the weekend. But how did Costa sustain the injury?
Dunno. How? We’re ready to hold on to our sides. This is going to be hilarious.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho revealed the reason in his post-match press conference, and it’s pretty bizarre and frankly a bit funny.
Only a bit funny now.
So writes Jamie Sanderson in his story based on a tweet about Mourinho’s sardonic response to the treatment meted out to his feisty striker.
