It's fair to say that Diego Costa has had his fair share of incidents since he made his much publicised move to Stamford Bridge back in the summer.
Despite heavy criticism from sections of the media and the press, he always received public backing from Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea team mates.
Now, in an amazing turn of events that started with him pulling out of the Spanish squad with Hamstring problems that have blighted Costa over the past year, Costa has had a major bust up with Jose Mourinho.
It's obvious that Costa has real issues with his Hamstrings. How could anyone forget the fact he had to leave the Champions League Final against Real Madrid early because of his ongoing problem.
It's being reported that Jose Mourinho and his Medical Team had approached Costa to try and resolve the problem once and for all and it pushed him over the edge.
Mourinho believes that he MUST have an operation in the summer on BOTH of his Hamstrings because we cannot afford to have these problems next season. Costa disagreed and stated that he could manage the problem and did not appreciate being told otherwise. It escalated from there with both refusing to budge.
Diego Costa as we know is a temperamental character and it seems that there had been a number of issues burning under the surface and in what seems to be something that started from literally nothing has caused the situation to escalate.
We all saw Costa appear at his old stomping ground to see his ex teammates at Atletico the other week and he was thought to have told his friends there that he couldn't handle the way things had panned out with opponents and match officials claiming that he is being made a scapegoat because of his reputation.
You only have to look at the coverage Martin Skrtel received for his stamp on David De Gea compared to what Costa received a few weeks previously. Costa believes there has been and remains a witch hunt against him.
It's hard to believe what I am writing for you to read this morning with Costa leading the goalscoring charts and everything seeming to be all good.
I guess Costa hasn't really been able to settle here and the lack of English still remains apparent. Despite the language being a problem it's also believed that he pinned Gary Cahill up against the wall in the Chelsea dressing room after PSG scored two headed goals to send them through. Costa felt that Cahill was the culprit and told him in no uncertain terms what he thought!
I love Diego Costa as much as the next Chelsea fan. We had really taken him to our hearts but with the running battles with defenders where he feels that he is being punished, to penalties not being given, to the witch hunt from the media and now the fall out with Mourinho, it seems that this could be one major incident that will continue to grow well into the summer and puts our title hopes in jeopardy.
There will be plenty more on this developing story during April Fools!
