Diego Costa hails ‘outstanding’ Chelsea squad
Diego Costa says Chelsea have what it takes to fight for silverware on all four fronts next season
Diego Costa is convinced that Chelsea have what it takes to fight for silverware on all four fronts next season.
The Spain international striker completed his move to Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid this month and has been thoroughly impressed by the quality of Jose Mourinho’s team.
“We have an outstanding squad and, if we can all stick together, pull in the same direction and remain focused, I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be going to the final stages and fighting for every trophy available,” Costa told Chelsea’s website.
The Brazil-born forward also said that he expects a tough fight with his Spain team-mate Fernando Torres for a spot in Mourinho’s starting line-up.
“Firstly, it’s important for me to respect the situation I’m in,” he continued. “I’ve come here to have a great fight professionally with Fernando Torres in order to get into the team.
“Working with players such as those here will definitely aid my game and I know I’ll get chances.
“I look forward to playing with them but the most important thing is getting into the team and that’s not a foregone conclusion.”
