Diego Costa: Target Of English Media- Mourinho

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has praised his forward, Diego Costa, for keeping his head in the Aston Villa weekend encounter following a clash with Villa’s Ashley Westwood.

Diego Costa’s match against Aston Villa was his first after a three-match ban by the FA for his clash with Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny, and the team welcomed him as he scored the match-day opener.

Mourinho also lashed out at the English media for always picking on the 27 year old Diego Costa, adding that he has become a target for press who criticize his every action on the field of play.

Mourinho said, “I’m pleased he didn’t react, but I would be even happier if the people who find his hypothetical or real negative moments were honest the other way and show and show and show.

“He will be targeted until the moment people point the finger at them and show the images, re-show the images and have the top pundits speaking about it.

“When you lose him we’re a bit in trouble because the team always depends on a striker like him, from a character and personality like him.

“Diego isn’t a leader in the dressing room, he doesn’t even speak English well, but in the game, the way he plays, the way he gives his body to the cause is brilliant,” he added.
