‘Costa like Sergio Aguero’

Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has compared Diego Costa to former Colchoneros forward Sergio Aguero.

The Spain international has been in sensational form this term, netting 21 goals in 26 League appearances.

And the full-back  believes that the 25-year-old is similar to their ex-striker, and has also rubbished suggestions that they can challenge for the title.

“Every time we seem to get stuck, Diego proves to be decisive,” he told Marca.

“He always manages to create chances from nothing. I hope he can continue to do the same as if he does he's in for a fantastic career.

“Sometimes his game reminds me of Kun Agüero.

“La Liga is still a competition for just two clubs, although we are trying to do something really great. If we hadn't won against Espanyol, we'd be 6 points off.”
