It now seems certain that Diego Costa will not be at Chelsea next season. He is the best pantomime football villain ever. He looks like something Jim Henson created. I must admit I find it hard to take him seriously when he’s glowering from beneath those heavy eyebrows. Can he really but that angry and underhand in real life?
One thing is for sure, if I had a choice of having a beer with either Vardy, Kane or Costa, Costa would be my choice, at least he’s got a personality. He’s a big character that brings entertainment onto the pitch in these rather insipid times.
But apart from all that, last season he was probably the best striker in the league. When he’s on his game, he is a handful for any defence.
Arsenal have often been described as a team lacking in fight – well DC would certainly redress that balance in the side!
Many might say that hell would have to freeze over before Arsene signed a player like Costa- – but don’t forget, he put in a bid for Suarez.
So the question is, would you like to see Diego Costa in an Arsenal shirt?
