Eden Hazard sends message to Chelsea supporters about Diego Costa
Eden Hazard admits that he wants to see Diego Costa back playing for Chelsea this season
Eden Hazard has admitted that he is hoping Diego Costa and resolve his differences with Antonio Conte and work his way back into the first team at Chelsea.
Costa’s situation has been a relentless source of speculation since the start of the summer, when Conte reportedly informed the striker by text message that he had no future at Stamford Bridge.
The alleged move came as something of a surprise given that the forward played an integral role in helping Chelsea to win the Premier League title for the second time in three seasons last term.
Costa has so far refused to return to Chelsea from his summer holiday as the uncertainty around his future continues.
And Hazard has admitted that he hopes to be able to line up with the Spain international again this season.
Hazard is quoted as saying by Metro: “Diego? We spend three years together and we won everything, not the Champions League but we won the League. It was a pleasure to play with him.
“I want him back but you know I don’t make the decision. But he is a top guy, a top player.
“I hope for him in the future he can find a solution and I want to see him on the pitch soon.”
Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
