Antonio Conte: I know I took a risk with Diego Costa
Antonio Conte chose to keep Diego Costa on the pitch despite the threat of a quarantine hanging over the Chelsea striker’s head.
Diego Costa has scored a lot of goals, but also received a lot of yellow cards which means he will receive a quarantine next time, he receives a card.
After Chelsea’s 3-0 victory was secured against Leicester, Diego Costa gave signal to manger Antonio Conte that he wanted to be taken out, but the Italian manager overheard the plea of the striker.
-I am fully aware that I took a risk because with a warning, he would be getting a quarantine against Manchester United. But like I have said earlier his passion is incredibly important, and we need that all the time, Antonio Conte said.
