Mourinho: Costa is Happy at Chelsea

Reports on Monday night suggested the Brazil-born striker had told friends and family that he wants to quit Stamford Bridge after just one season and move back to Atletico Madrid. While reports in Spain have suggested the Spain striker is looking for a route out of the west London.But Mourinho, who shares the same agent as Costa, is adamant that the striker wants to stay at the club and insists the 26-year-old is fuming at suggestions he wants to quit.

Costa hit 20 Premier League goals for Chelsea in his first season in his first season in English football, having joined from Atleti last summer for £32m. Meanwhile, he failed to hit the target in any other competition, including the Blues’ run to the League Cup final, where they beat Tottenham to lift the trophy, or in seven Champions League outings. Costa plays as a striker and has been described by pundits as a player whose main attributes are his physicality, goal-scoring and ability to keep possession.

Chelsea, who paid £32m for his services last summer, have dismissed those suggestions and will not countenance any bids for his services.

“I’m happy he’s unhappy because his unhappiness destroys my dressing room,” said Mourinho, after Chelsea’s win against Sydney on Tuesday (2/6). “He is the guy responsible for every single good moment in the dressing room. He is so happy, he is so funny and he is enjoying every minute at Chelsea and people are enjoying every single minute of him.”

The boss tried to convince that Costa has no problems during his career in the Premier League side. “So if this is unhappiness I am happy with that. But he was not happy with that news. In his bad English I think he has to try to express how unhappy he is with this news and how happy he is at Chelsea,” mentioned Mourinho.

The Spanish striker was in action in Australia on Tuesday as the Blues took part in a post-season friendly against Sydney.Costa featured for 40 minutes of the first half in the victory over Sydney, with Mourinho keen to give the fans in Australia a glimpse of the striker in action. It was fringe-striker Loic Remy that grabbed the only goal of the game, but Mourinho was happy that the home fans got to witness Costa in part.

“Diego was another one that respected the support of fans in Australia,” he added. “We felt it when we arrived, in the hotel and at training. We wanted to try to play our best players. This group of 10 seniors, we played them all.”
