Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa says Chelsea’s sacking of Antonio Conte by Chelsea proved he was right in his row with the Italian.
Costa forced his move out of Chelsea last year after staying home in Brazil.
He recalled to Marca: “It was a very bad moment, but it was not my fault.
“People have said things, but time puts everything in its place. Look where Antonio Conte is now. I made a mistake in Chelsea because of their way of managing things.
“Diego Simeone is a direct coach, and when he does not like you, it’s clear and he shows it.”
