Diego Costa let Atletico Madrid decide his future
Diego Costa admitted that he gave his future in the hands of Atletico Madrid this summer. The forward was associated with a departure from the club, which brought Luis Suarez to his position. Costa let the club decide his future,” he said after Sunday’s win over Granada. “I never wanted to fight to be a burden here, on the contrary, and I made it clear to the club. I listened if they were going to sell me if there is a chance to go on loan, I would leave. If they wanted to terminate my contract, I would also agree. I spoke to the club, boss. I made it clear what was going on, that I’m going to fight and keep fighting. And that if injuries allow, I’m going to be here, but if there were a possibility I would leave, I’d leave.
“I am at their disposal”. Upon the arrival of Suarez, Costa could not understand why Barcelona had left him to leave. “We have a player like Luis, who, luckily for us, left Barcelona,” added Costa. “I don’t know how such a team allows him to leave. In the end, it’s perfect for us. He gives us a lot with his goals, his fighting spirit in the dressing room, and his will to win and win trophies.” Many speculated about whether Diego Simeone will play Suarez and Costa together upfront. “It’s excellent,” Costa said on the prospect. One biting and one fighting.”
