Antonio Conte stresses positive Diego Costa memories

Loading...





The Spain star may have left Stamford Bridge under a cloud, but his former coach has positive memories of working with him.


Despite their relationship ending in acrimony, Conte has refused to criticise the fiery centre-forward, instead praising him for the way they "fought together".

"It's not right to talk about players who are not in my team and squad," Conte told Sky Sports. "But I thank him for his commitment and behaviour during the season.

"We won together, so I will always remember him in a positive way. We fought together and won together."

Without the services of Costa, Chelsea look set to lose their Premier League crown to Manchester City and Conte says they already need to start thinking about being ready to fight them next season.

"We have to try to fight them," Conte added. "We have to find the right way to fight them.

"If it's not possible this season, we must be ready to fight them next season. This must be our target."
Tap to see.
