Chelsea striker Diego Costa has insisted he feels ‘no bitterness’ as he prepares to leave the club and rejoin former team Atletico Madrid. That’s despite his fall out with manager Antonio Conte, self-imposed exile all summer and accusations of being treated ‘like a criminal’.
Chelsea and Atletico announced earlier this week that a deal to take Costa back to Madrid had been agreed, subject to personal terms and a medical.
“I’m not upset with anybody,” the player declared.
“I have no bitterness towards anyone. Everything is cool. Everybody knows how much I love the [Chelsea] fans.”
