Diego Costa’s refusal to return to Chelsea’s training seems not to be going down well with past footballers who have all questioned his behavior.
Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright spoke to BBC talking about being disappointed with Costa’s wrong attitude, former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino also slammed the Spaniard, another ex-footballer John Collins has also joined the queue in blasting the former Athletico Madrid player.
Former Celtic and Scotland midfield, John Collins has labeled Diego Costa a ‘disgrace’ and an ’embarrassment to his profession’.
Costa, 28, released a statement from his family home in Brazil saying he won’t return to Chelsea but want a move to former club Athletico Madrid.
Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Collins was unequivocal in his condemnation of Costa’s actions.
“He’s just a disgrace,” said the former Scotland international.
“He’s an embarrassment to the profession, to be honest, with what he’s doing and I hope he doesn’t come back to Chelsea.
“I hope they sell him because it will be a nightmare for the manager if he comes back and is hanging around the dressing room.”
