‘Costa was underrated at Chelsea’

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta believes his international teammate Diego Costa was ‘underrated’ during his stint at Stamford Bridge.

The versatile defender was speaking ahead of the English champions clash with Atletico Madrid, whom Costa has now joined, but insisted his club must move on also.

“He was an underrated player here,” Azpilicueta told a pre-match press conference.

“I was lucky enough to play with Diego at Chelsea and with Spain, where I hope to play with him again of course.

“He has now decided for a change so best of luck to him, he was a very important player for Chelsea but now he has moved on so must we.”
