Chelsea star: Antonio Conte was furious with me after I told him this

The Italian boss arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer but was faced with a challenging issue regarding his top striker. 

Costa has made no secret of his affiliation with former club Atletico Madrid even while at Chelsea.

And that desire again to return last summer spelled problems for the 28-year-old and Conte.

The Spain international has admitted Conte was furious with his intentions, which even resulted in the former Juventus boss blanking him.

However, a move failed to materialise, forcing Diego Costa to confront his manager to clear the air.

“The relationship with Conte did not start well because on arrival I told him that I wanted to go to Atletico,” Costa told Spanish radio station El Larguero.

“He got angry with me, almost didn’t looked at me; I would have done the same.

“When Atletico did not wait for me I went with the tail between my legs to talk to Conte.”

Since the summer saga, a switch to China appeared more likely as Chelsea turned down a January approach for their top scorer.

That debate led to a training ground bust-up between the pair.

But on the pitch and behind the scenes, Costa and Conte are now much more at ease, helping to edge Chelsea nearer to securing the Premier League title.
