Madrid, Sep 23: Diego Costa, who rejoined former club Atletico Madrid after a months-long battle with Chelsea, embraced the positive outcome to what had been an arduous process. Chelsea, where the striker spent three seasons, agreed Thursday with Atletico on the terms of Costa’s return to the La Liga club, reports Efe.
Back with Atletico, Costa says all’s well that ends well
“Very pleased. I think it has taken too long, but I’ve had a happy ending. Now, I am looking forward to seeing my teammates and starting to train,” Costa said at Madrid’s intertiol airport on Friday after arriving aboard a flight from Sao Paulo. The Brazilian-born Spaniard acknowledged that he grew “a little nervous” as time passed without an agreement between Chelsea and Atleti.
“Miguel (Angel Gil Marin, Atletico’s CEO) made a great effort and I am very grateful for that, both to him and the club. I am very pleased by this effort and I will try somehow to thank (the club),” Costa said. IANS
