Diego Costa has used Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Barcelona as another opportunity to fire a dig at Antonio Conte.
Costa and Conte had a bad relationship at Stamford Bridge despite the striker’s goals firing the Blues to the Premier League title last season.The Spain international was subsequently frozen out by Conte, claiming the Italian informed him he was no longer needed at the club via text message.
Costa returned to former club Atletico Madrid when their transfer ban was lifted in January, but he was a keen observer of Chelsea’s trip to Camp Nou on Wednesday. Costa posted a shot of a team news graphic to his Instagram stories. But there was one omission from the Chelsea squad list, with Costa scribbling out Conte’s name.
