The former Arsenal legend has slammed Diego Costa’s behaviour.
Ian Wright has labelled Diego Costa’s refusal to return to training as “disgraceful”. The Chelsea forward cried out that Chelsea are treating him like a criminal, blocking his move to former club Athletico Madrid despite being told by coach Antonio Conte that he does not feature in his plans for the new season.
Costa, 28, was told by Chelsea to return to training but will training with the reserves which Costa refused, saying he can’t train with the reserves and former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has slammed Costa’s actions.
“I don’t understand how players can get away with that behaviour,” said Wright.
“It’s disgraceful the way he is behaving,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 live’s The Monday Night Club.
“Surely he’s got to come back here, so if the manager changes his mind he’s there. He’s earning a fortune at Chelsea. Can Atletico Madrid even afford him?”
Costa, however, is considering legal action against Chelsea in order to force his move away.
