Costa Go Home

Putting a £57 million deal in place with Atletico Madrid for Diego Costa will be “a relief” for Chelsea, says club legend Frank Lampard.

The former England international wrote in a column for the Evening Standard: “Costa leaving will be a relief to Conte and Chelsea – it is the best thing for all concerned.

“If it was just a case of selling a talented striker, then we’d be talking about what a great loss he is to the club. But he had to go. There was no way he could stay at Chelsea, given the events of the summer and the sooner he went, the better.

“It’s great for Costa, too. He needs to go and train properly before starting playing again in January. He couldn’t carry on staying in Brazil like he was, it wasn’t helping anybody.”
