The angry ‘old’ man of Chelsea pulled off another stunt which the Special one surely wouldn’t approve of.
Diego Costa along with Ramires and Kennedy was seen partying till late night on Wednesday at London’s nightclub named Libertine. Chelsea will play Bournemouth of Saturday and according to Mourinho’s policy his players are not allowed to drink alcohol 48 hours before a match day. And the trio did test the rule a bit. This incident comes soon after the touchline tantrum and seems like the Spaniard is trying to be rebellious after not being fielded at White Hart Lane.
Mourinho did not give the Spaniard game time in the London Derby and that did not go down very well with the hot headed Costa and showing his discontent he threw his bib in the direction of the Portuguese. After the game Mourinho told the press “If he wants to hurt me, it’s not with a bib. I have a good relationship with him, no problems”. But we sniff another player manager rift in Chelsea this season. It’s never boring at Chelsea!
Ramires, Costa and Kennedy were escorted out of the club by guards at 3;15 in the morning. And along with the trio was super middle-weight champion James DeGale who was at the club celebrating his comprehensive victory over Lucian Bute.
A complete disregard for rules and standards will not go down well with the Special One. And we all know what kind of an individual Costa is. Mourinho laughed about Costa’s antics and said that he fully understands why the striker reacted in the way that he did, but the question that stands now is whether Mourinho will laught off a complete flouting of rules or will we see fireworks when Chelsea take on Bournemouth on Saturday?
