Former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa is all set to make his second debut for his former club Atletico Madrid
- Diego Costa is all ready to play for his former club, Atletico Madrid.
- The Spanish striker was officially presented by Atletico President Enrique Cerezo and Sports Director Jose Luis Perez Caminero.
Costa agreed to sign for the Spanish giants in September but was unable to sign for his former side due to the club’s transfer window ban.
After completing his signing, Costa said,
“I’ve waited a long time for this day. I’m tired of training and I need to play. I’ve been working hard and training hard but there’s nothing else to do.”
The Spanish international further added,
“I’m in much better shape than when I arrived. I’ve prepared well and worked hard and I’m ready to help the team and score goals.”
The 31-year-old Spanish footballer also trained hard along with Antoine Griezmann and other teammates. Diego Costa is all set to play his first match for the club on Wednesday against Lleida in the Copa del Rey.
Furthermore, he has worked hard so much as he is ready to make his second debut. Now, Atletico Madrid is looking strong enough to face their rivals in La Liga, Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
