Chelsea's Diego Costa: I won't lie, I wanted to return to Atletico Madrid

Antonio Conte stresses how important Diego Costa is to Chelsea's success this season.
Craig Burley says Diego Costa's lack of discipline is no good for anybody and he won't get away with it any longer.
Julen Lopetegui wastes no time as he's omitted both Iker Casillas and Cesc Fabregas from the Spain squad.

Diego Costa has admitted that after a difficult year at Chelsea last season, he considered returning to Atletico Madrid.

The 27-year-old, a £32 million signing from Atletico Madrid two years ago, was reportedly unhappy at Chelsea at the end of last season and there were doubts as to how the temperamental Brazil-born player would fare under Antonio Conte. 

But the forward has enjoyed a strong start to the 2016-17 campaign, scoring two goals in two league starts for Chelsea. He has...

Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Anotine Griezmann have been named as nominees for this prestigious award, but who will take the plaudits?
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe says that Antoine Griezmann probably won't leave Atletico Madrid this summer.

Atletico Madrid need to keep 'calm and continue working' - Diego Simeone

Diego Simeone believes Antoine Griezmann deserved to be named UEFA's Best Player in Europe ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Diego Simeone has called for patience after Atletico Madrid drew their second straight match of the new La Liga campaign, 0-0 away at newly-promoted Leganes.

After dropping points in a 1-1 draw at home against Alaves in the first week of the season, Los Rojiblancos once again failed to fire against relegation-favourites Leganes.

Simeone, however, believes that if his players continue to work hard, then the results will begin to fall their way.

"I absolutely think that with work and enthusiasm we...
