Diego Costa relishing reunion with Radamel Falcao at Chelsea

first_img Felipe Luis, Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao 1 Diego Costa is confident Radamel Falcao will rediscover his best form at Chelsea following the Colombia international’s season-long loan move to Stamford Bridge.Jose Mourinho took a punt on Falcao after his difficult spell at Manchester United last season – he scored just four goals.Spain international Costa played with Falcao for Atletico Madrid in the past and is looking forward to their reunion.“I’ve spent a couple of seasons with Falcao and I reckon things went fairly well,” he said.“He did a lot for me and he’s a great striker.“He’s a top bloke too. He gets on very well with his team-mates and he will help us a lot off the field, in the dressing room. He is a really big-hearted guy and that’s the most important thing.“I think it’s good for us that he didn’t have the best of seasons as that’s why he’s now with us.“Radamel knows the sort of manager Mourinho is. He’s a manager who is liked by players because he trusts and backs them. He doesn’t sign a player just for the sake of it.”Costa ruffled plenty of feathers last season as he scored 20 goals to seal the Premier League title in his first season at Stamford Bridge.The 26-year-old’s roughhouse style – which earned him a three match ban for stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can – made him a target for opposition players and fans, but the Spaniard sees no need to change.“I don’t think I have done anything malicious, I’ve not had a red card so why change anything about the way I am?” Costa added.“I’ve always played this way for all the sides I’ve been with and I’ve always scored a lot of goals in this style.“The key for me is to score goals and win trophies. If I change in any way, I’m not going to be the same player.“I feel very much at ease and neither the manager nor anyone else at the club has said anything to me, and at no point have I shown any lack of loyalty at all and so that is good enough for me.”last_img
