Last quote by Diego Costa

Matic has obviously fitted in very well. When you look at a fully fit squad at United, you see a lot of big physical players on the pitch and he fits into that bill.feedback

Diego Costa quotes

Aug 21 2017

If I'd been in the team for three years, it was for them and the dressing room, which was very much united. It was a great experience.feedback

Aug 18 2017

Chelsea have offered me to several clubs, but I was very clear with them. I said that if I'm not part of the manager's plans, I would like to choose my destination. I'm not going to let them decide just to get more money.feedback

Aug 18 2017

I know that this [big effort] will happen, but if it's to pay the amount that Chelsea want it won't be possible.feedback

Aug 18 2017

Of course for the warmth and respect that I earned there, they showed interest. But they wouldn't pay a fortune. Atletico is a team growing every year, a big team, but they can't pay an extraordinary amount.feedback

Aug 18 2017

I don't know [how much Chelsea want for him], but my agent said that Chelsea want something that Atletico can't get near.feedback

Aug 18 2017

When we heard that Conte didn't want me anymore, my agent went to find out if there was interest from Atletico for me coming back.feedback

Aug 18 2017

I must return to Atletico Madrid.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - World Cup

If I'm off, I'm going to the club I want to go to – not the club that's paying the most. I want the deal with Atlético resolved this month. My idea would be to go to Madrid, train there, get in the best physical shape and be ready to fire ahead of the World Cup. Simeone wants me. It is very clear. I have always had a bond with him. The fans and people love me there. They respect me. They see me as a person and a footballer.feedback

Aug 17 2017

My destination is already set. I must return to Atlético Madrid next season.feedback

Aug 17 2017

If I have to I will stay in Brazil. I am open to being a year in Brazil without playing, even if Chelsea fine me for a year and don't pay me. I'll come back stronger. If I was in the wrong, I'd go back now and do as they say.feedback

Aug 14 2017

Why won't they let me go if they don't want me? I want to go to Atlético Madrid.feedback

Aug 14 2017 - China

I have rejected other offers. They want to sell me to China or other teams. The language is better for me in Spain. If I'm off, I'm going to the club I want to go to, not the club that's paying the most.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I wouldn't be allowed access to the first-team dressing room and I would have no contact at all with the guys. I'm not a criminal! I don't think it is fair after all I have done to be treated like that. I respect him as a great coach. He has done a good job and I can see that, but as a person, no. He is not a coach who is very close with his players. He is very distant. He doesn't possess charisma.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I take the hit every week but I'm not driven by money. You know that the manager doesn't want me. I am waiting for Chelsea to set me free. I didn't want to leave. I was happy. When the manager does not want you, you have to go.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The coach must be in total control of the dressing room.feedback

Jul 27 2017

When I was a footballer, [Marcello] Lippi and [Giovanni] Trapattoni and [Carlo] Ancelotti and [Arrigo] Sacchi - my coaches - were totally in control of the dressing room.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The players are at the same level and sometimes I demand more from the older players than the young players – they have more experience to teach the young players the right behaviour.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Otherwise, there is anarchy. Yes, anarchy.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Otherwise, you are preparing to die - 'Morira'. If this doesn't happen, you are preparing yourself for death.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - World Cup

I rule out China, I have to think about my future. I have to think about the World Cup.feedback

Jun 12 2017

Atletico are among those teams. Signing for Atletico wouldn't mean not playing, I could go (on loan) to some team in Spain, in Italy, in Brazil...wherever I can continue playing.feedback

Jun 12 2017

Everyone knows that Atletico is a club that I have a lot of love for. Regardless of if I return or not, I'm always going to continue loving them. Now we have to wait to see how things turn out.feedback

Jun 12 2017

But there are ways of saying things, ways of doing things. Thanks to God I'm not lacking teams (to join). If Chelsea don't want me I will choose the best option for me.feedback

Jun 12 2017

You need to ask Conte what has happened, he's the coach and if he has the option of signing someone else and doesn't want to have problems with a senior player then that's normal.feedback

Jun 11 2017

These are very important games but the match against Italy [in September] is more so. Those of us [nearing a suspension] were very focused and knew how important it was not to see a yellow card.feedback

Jun 11 2017

In the first half we could have scored more, but the second was complicated. We learned to be together and suffer.feedback

Jun 11 2017

I don't know. I have two years left on my contract with Chelsea, they have to realise what they want to do with me. I have to wait to see what decision the club makes.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - World Cup

It would be nice to go back, but it's difficult to be four-five months without playing. It's a World Cup year and there's a lot to think about. I need to play, that's all.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - World Cup

My relationship with the coach has been bad this season. It's a shame, I've already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. You have to find a team. I do not know, it's complicated, but people know that I love Atletico a lot and that I love to live in Madrid. It would be nice to go back, but it's difficult to be four or five months without playing. It's a World Cup year and there are many things to think about. I need to play, just that.feedback

Jun 08 2017

It's a shame, I've already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. But it is clear that the coach does not count on me and does not want me there. You have to find a team.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I'm on the market and so I'm looking for a team. If the coach doesn't want you, you have to leave.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - World Cup

I had a simple little message on my mobile from Conte in which he said that he isn't counting on me for next season. It will be because I've done badly this year. It's a shame. I've forwarded the message on to the people at the club for them to decide but it's clear that the coach isn't counting on me and he doesn't want me there. It would be nice to go back to Atletico but I have to think everything over. There's a World Cup [in 2018] and I need to play. Being four or five months without playing is tough, but people know that I love my Atletico team-mates a lot, I love living in Madrid.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I love living in Madrid, but I have to think about my future. It's complicated because I cannot go four or five months without playing. I have no preference for a league, I just want to play.feedback

May 28 2017

I was in great form and it was a shame I didn't start the game. I was playing very well and the team was winning, scoring a lot of goals and defending well.feedback

May 28 2017

I'm sure he wants the best for the team and if he thinks that is the way to go you have to go with it, we are a team. It is between him and me. I have nothing against Antonio, he has done a fantastic job.feedback

May 28 2017

Not necessarily, but in football you can never say never.feedback

May 28 2017

That is football, you have to accept decisions. It is a bad day and a shame because we wanted to win. The most important thing is the team didn't win.feedback

May 28 2017

It is still a good season. We go home with a bad taste because of what has happened but for sure we would rather win the Premier League than the FA Cup.feedback

May 27 2017

If I have to move to another city or another country than Spain, I don't think I'll go, I'd rather stay at Chelsea. If the club wants to sell me, they know where I want to go.feedback

May 27 2017

I have a contract and no intention of leaving, but if there are changes to be made that might reduce my chances, if the coach won't count on me anymore or is to give space for another striker, I know that I'll have to leave. But only to where I'm willing to.feedback

May 27 2017 - World Cup

Money is good, but I'm grateful for what I have right now and I have other things to look forward to, like playing the next World Cup. I know that I have a chance to be called if I'm playing well and at a high level, that's something I want.feedback

May 27 2017

I guess we were a little off coming into the match, while Arsenal showed they wanted to win it. They scored once and had the chance for a second during the first 45. We came better for the second half and scored the equalizer, but they went ahead soon after. It happens, I want to congratulate them for the fine display.feedback

May 27 2017

I wish this final was played before the end of the league so we wouldn't finish with this feeling just after winning the Premier League. To play a beautiful final like this and lose is a little bitter, but that's football.feedback

May 10 2017

Someone I liked to watch is Drogba. Didier Drogba was an amazing striker when he was at Chelsea. But now, my style, maybe [Christian] Benteke. He's a tall, strong player. But I always watch other strikers.feedback

May 09 2017 - China

I am the owner of my future and it does not mean that I am going to China.feedback

May 07 2017

We are building. We started to build this season. If we are able to win, it's a great achievement for us. When you start to build, it's very difficult to carry on winning. This is a process. No one thought Chelsea could fight to win the title and be in the FA Cup final this season.feedback

Apr 25 2017

But, for me, I've always said I've been pleased with his commitment, his work for the team. He always worked for the team. Sometimes he was unlucky in different circumstances, but I was always confident about him. After the Tottenham game, I said I'm sure he's keeping his goals for the final weeks of the season. Now he must continue. He's very important for us. His confidence is very important for us. He scored two very beautiful goals, good combination and technique between him and his team-mates.feedback

Apr 24 2017

But also there is a manager in every team that must make the best decision in this situation to find the right balance and also to give the chance to other players that show great commitment, great work-rate and great desire to play. But their reaction was good, for me the reaction was normal.feedback

Apr 14 2017

He knows the house already and I think he wants to prove he can be successful here, he didn't get the chance to do it. Chelsea is his club since he was young, so why not? He wants to be the best. He's really working hard to become the best.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I want to play. Playing right now is great. We are playing to win a championship. During the previous season I was out a lot of the time, either because of a suspension or an injury or for another reason. So this year I really want to play the remaining matches and enjoy myself here in Chelsea.feedback

Apr 03 2017

We hope that the next game the ball will go in and that we do a better job at handling these counter-attacking plays so we do not suffer from early goals again, and avoid what happened (against Palace).feedback

Apr 03 2017

They have two good players up front and knew how to utilise it the best way they could. Afterwards they got behind the ball, we created opportunities and the ball did not go in.feedback

Mar 26 2017

[As a result] he was submitted to a series of tests (x-ray and TAC) at Sanitas Clinic in La Moraleja, where finally he was given the okay. The footballer is still under observation and will remain with the team during training camp. Chelsea FC medical services were informed of the players' condition.feedback

Mar 26 2017

I'm very happy with Chelsea, but in football everything can happen, and if we have to change, France is a place where I've never been to I never played, so why not. Everyone knows that [PSG] is a respected team in Europe. Monaco also has a great project and great players.feedback

Mar 22 2017

In life anything can happens. I don't close the door to anybody. Now I'm fine at Chelsea but you never know.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I've done everything to come back to Atletico Madrid but I wouldn't fight the same to return. When Atletico didn't wait for me, I had to go to Conte with the tail between my legs.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Atletico knows I have a special feeling for the team, I lived the best moment of my career there. El Cholo [Diego Simeone] knows it wasn't impossible for me to come back to Atletico. The relationship with Conte didn't start well because when he arrived I told him I wanted to go to Atletico. Chelsea's fans love me a lot, even more than in Atletico, figure that. When Atletico had to wait for me they didn't, there was still a month to go in the transfer market.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I hope Real Madrid doesn't get Hazard or Courtois.feedback

Mar 22 2017

In life, everything can happen, and I do not close the door to anything. Right now I'm good at Chelsea, I have two years left. I intend to fulfil my contract but you never know. It is not impossible to refuse it because there are things to value. Everything must be thought. I do not discard anything. If they come with something for Chelsea and the club tells me to leave ... I can go to China or another side.feedback

Mar 22 2017

The relationship with Conte did not begin well because on arrival I told him that I wanted to go to Atletico. I did everything possible to return to Atletico. I won't fight like that to return again. When Atletico had to wait for me they didn't. There was still a month of the market to go. When Atletico did not wait I went with the tail between the legs to speak with Conte. Do not rule out anything. It is almost impossible to go to Madrid with the relationship I have with Atletico.feedback

Mar 18 2017

I think that we have to look at ourselves and not the others. Today was an important win for us and if good results arrive from other games we are happy.feedback

Mar 07 2017

It was always a tough game. When they come to a bigger pitch, with the crowd further from the players, maybe they don't feel the same heat from the crowd.feedback

Mar 07 2017

It was nothing. People here [in England] make up a lot of stuff. Things happen, but I'm showing now that there's nothing to it. I'm playing and scoring goals, and that's the important thing. Everyone knows that anything I say has bigger repercussions than what it was. The manager is someone who works us really hard in training. He's got his personality just like I've got mine and others have theirs, but the important thing is to show your personality in a way that benefits the team. This is what's happening. Everyone is on the same page and that's the way we have to go.feedback

Mar 04 2017

We know this game against Manchester City will be a six-point affair since if we win the game they will [practically] be out of the title race while we keep the advantage.feedback

Mar 04 2017

But now it is not the time to let ourselves down. We should keep our heads up and think ahead for the next game since it will be very important.feedback
