Diego Costa warned by Chelsea over Antonio Conte public disagreement

Diego Costa warned by Chelsea over Antonio Conte public disagreement

Diego Costa received a warning from Chelsea FC about his behaviour after he engaged in a public spat with manager Antonio Conte in Saturday’s win against Leicester City.

Costa became angered with the Italian’s ‘micro-management’ style from the touchline and didn’t make much of an attempt to hide his feelings.

The Spain inter­national was reported as being unsettled at Stamford Bridge over the summer, but has started this season in superb goal scoring form.

The 28-year-old was, however, seen laughing with team-mates shortly after the game at the weekend, so fans will hope that any tension between himself and Conte is now in the past.
