Chelsea Skipper Admits Costa Blow
Chelsea captain Gary Cahill admits that the loss of Diego Costa will be felt by the Premier League champions this season. Costa is set to leave the club for Atletico Madrid and the Blues have already replaced him with Alvaro Morata.
Costa is currently in Brazil having taken no part in pre-season training. His transfer is being held up by a transfer ban prohibiting Atletico from buying him until January. Chelsea skipper Cahill thinks he will be a big loss for the Blues.
“Diego Costa is Diego Costa. He scores goals. He is an animated character and he is a big personality," Cahill said.
“He will be a big miss. We have obviously added to the squad with Alvaro and that is a great addition to the squad, but you are always to going miss big players.”
