Diego Costa future in doubt after row with Conte


Chelsea striker Diego Costa’s future has taken a new turn at the Club after a ‘Blazing row’ with Antonio Conte over his fitness, according to a report by the Daily Mirror.

The striker has not been able to travel with the rest of the squad (ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Premier League title holders Leicester) with his future also believed to be in doubt after having a huge argument with boss Conte over a recent injury.


Costa claimed that he was suffering from a lower back problem, which could arguably also be linked to his history of hamstring injuries. However, despite Costa’s claims, members of the medical team are not convinced that Costa’s complaints are legit and Conte has sided with his team, which is understandable.

The disagreement has caused a row and has led to the falling out.

It was believed that Costa’s was going to be offered a new contract soon but this new development is casting doubt over that possibility.

Report by the Daily Mail also claimed that Costa has had his representatives look for potential offers in China.
