Chelsea's Diego Costa lambasted by French mediaNo celebrations by Costa on Wednesday night
Diego Costa was heavily criticized by several papers in France on Thursday morning after Paris Saint Germain knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League.
Costa spent most of the game trying to influence the referee and did little of note in front of goal. This has not done him many favours for his popularity in France.
L'Equipe wrote this about Costa while also criticizing Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
"Diego Costa wears within him a natural anger which always leaves him on a knife-edge. By looking to wind-up opponents, by constantly confronting them, sometimes head-to-head, he creates an electricity and we await the spark. Last night, it never arrived. As his centre forward, he has been provoked a lot by Mourinho but now he has forgotten to play."
