Thibaut Courtois lifts lid on Chelsea star’s situation: He is calm

Thibaut Courtois lifts the lid on what he has seen from Diego Costa at Chelsea in recent days...

Thibaut Courtois has revealed that Diego Costa has been completely calm and collected at Chelsea in recent weeks despite the speculation about his situation at the club.

The Spanish striker has been in the headlines in recent days after he was left out of the Chelsea squad to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

Costa, however, returned to action on Sunday afternoon when he helped to fire Chelsea to a 2-0 win over Hull City as the Blues continued their push towards the Premier League title.

And Courtois has lifted the lid on what Costa’s week has been like behind the scenes at Chelsea amid the constant speculation about his future.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Courtois said: “We were very calm about it because we knew what was going on with Diego.

“Speculation in the press is for the outside and maybe other teams find that stuff pleasing when it comes out. But we knew it was just a minor injury and sometimes you have to sit out one game. Yesterday he was back, fit and scored a goal so it was good.

“There was too much talk last week for him. He was just calm, working hard in training and he showed that in the game.”
