Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed that the training ground row with manager Antonio Conte in January is “nothing” and criticized English media for over exaggerating the situation.

The Spanish striker was eventually left out of the Chelsea squad by Conte that travelled to Leicester City in January and the player was not seen in the training for nearly a week before making a comeback into the team.

Reports suggested that the duo has fallen out due to the back injury that Costa suffered as the striker has revealed to the medical team. He was then linked with a move to Chinese Super League in the January window.

However, things got sorted out between the manager and Costa as he is still their most prolific scorer this season and looks to finish very high in the goal scoring charts at the end of the season as the Blues are cruising to Premier League glory.

Speaking about the incident, Diego Costa told ESPN Brasil: ‘It was nothing. People here [in England] make up a lot of stuff.

‘Things happen, but I’m showing now that there’s nothing to it.

‘I’m playing and scoring goals, and that’s the important thing. Everyone knows that anything I say has bigger repercussions than what it was.

‘The manager is someone who works us really hard in training. He’s got his personality just like I’ve got mine and others have theirs, but the important thing is to show your personality in a way that benefits the team.

‘This is what’s happening. Everyone is on the same page and that’s the way we have to go.’

Costa is in sensational form as he scored his 18th goal of the season to inspire Chelsea to a 2-1 win against West Ham away as they extend their lead to 10 points at the top of the Premier League with just 11 games to go to the end of the season.
