Koke: Everyone at Atletico Wants Diego Costa Back …
Atletico Madrid midfielder, Koke, hopes his club can repatriate Diego Costa from Chelsea.
Costa certainly did not enter the plan Manager Antonio Conte for the 2017-2018 season. The trigger is a bad relationship between Costa and Conte since last season.
In fact, Costa was thrown off in an unpleasant way. The Spanish international claims Conte has made it through a short message to get him to find a new club.
Costa, once an Atletico star, was not interested in going to another club. The Brazilian-born player admitted he only wanted to return to the Spanish capital club.
Atletico players welcomed the news with joy. One of the positive responses came from Koke.
“Everyone here wants Diego Costa back, but the situation is very complicated,” Koke said as quoted by BolaSport.com from Football Espana.
Atletico is exposed to a transfer embargo until January 2018. The situation makes Los Rojiblancos can not register new players until the winter transfer market later.
“If it comes, he will really help us because it already knows the ins and outs of this team,” said 25-year-old player.
Atletico have already got Sevilla winger Vitolo but can not be registered in the team because of the penalty.
