Chelsea balls: Costa tosses his pink toys and misses Mourinho
Diego Costa is more entertaining off the pitch than on it. The Chelsea striker “threw his substitute bib at Jose Mourinho and his toys out of the pram” after being dropped, says the Mirror in “Diddums Diego”.
The Independent agrees that Cost tossed his bib “at Jose Mourinho”.
Which he didn’t. If he did, then he missed.
The Sun says Diego was in a “rage” at being dropped for Chelsea’ match at Spurs. After the boring 0-0 draw, Costa went and sat on the team bus on his own.
The Mail calls him “stroppy Costa”, adding that Chelsea ” looked better off without him”.
The Express says Costa’s future at the Blues is in the balance.
As for Mourinho, well, he opined: “If he wants to hurt me it would not be with a bib. I have a good relationship with him. Diego is physically fine, no problems. He works well, every day his mood is positive, he is the positive guy in the team. I do not expect to have a player on the bench jumping and shouting because he is not playing.”
Best save the hissy-fits for the management team.
