Antonio Conte reveals why
he ignored Diego Costa’s
request to be substituted

Antonio Conte told Diego Costa there’s only room for
one gaffer at Chelsea – after the striker threw a major
strop in the 3-0 victory over Leicester.
Costa, who put the Blues on the road to victory before
Eden Hazard and Victor Moses joined him on the
scoresheet, signalled to the bench that he wanted to
be substituted midway through the second half.
He was only one booking away from being suspended
for Jose ¬Mourinho’s return with Manchester United, a
week today, and was also touching a hamstring later in
the game, and he didn’t want to risk missing that
match.

But Conte, 47, refused to take him off and, when Costa
realised he’d be staying on, he made his fury clear by
gesticulating frantically towards his manager.
“Conte said: “I decided. Always I take the responsibility
in every ¬situation, in positive or negative ¬situations.
“It’s always my decision whether or not a player is
substituted. If I can, I keep Costa until the end of the
game.
“He is an important player for us. He has a good
personality and ¬transfers his passion, and we need
that passion in every moment of the game.
“I know I risked it because, if Costa took another yellow
card, he would miss the next game.
“I know I risked it because, if Costa took another yellow
card, he would miss the next game.
“But, I repeat, Costa’s passion is important for the
team. He must transfer this in every game and in every
single minute of the game.”
