Diego Costa has launched another stunning attack on the press.

The Chelsea star, who is currently on international duty with Spain, helped his country to a 2-0 friendly win over Belgium last night.

He produced an assist after replacing Alvaro Morata midway through the first half.

But Costa reckons he would be immune from attack from the Spanish press if he played for Real Madrid or Barcelona.

“Sometimes [the press] criticise me because I don’t play for Madrid or Barca or because I’m not a native Spaniard, but I think I had ??a good game, possibly my best [for Spain],” he said.

“A new era has begun and my teammates have faith in me. It’s true that the goals are still not there, but today I had a good feeling and [the goals] will come.

“I’d be worried if I didn’t have chances, but the team create them and that’s very good. I hope to score soon.

“I’m criticised for my character, but I also have quality. I won’t change, even if I’m criticised.”

Costa’s sensational attack comes after he criticised referees for being unfairly treated.

He told ESPN Brazil after the Blues’ opening-day win over West Ham: “I am aware of it now. The second time I went to talk to him, he showed me [the yellow card].

“I even found it a bit weird, but then I understood. I went to apologise at half-time and that’s it.

“But I’ll be honest, I am targeted here, by the referees, the people… if I do something, it’s totally different than if any other players do. It needs to be seen, that people targeted me.”
