There is no Premier League footballer more in-form right now than Spain international Diego Costa - and the striker hopes to replicate his performance-level on for his nation during the upcoming fixtures against France (friendly) and Macedonia (qualifier for European Championship).
In three appearances for the Blues, Costa has returned an astonishing four goals, has hit the target with 66% of his shots and could be a lock to pick up the top scorer award.
Considering his displays have been living up to his £32 million price-tag, having transferred to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid earlier in the summer, one would presume that all is going well for the goal-scorer, however, judging from the player's latest statements there is one thing he'd chance…
“Everything is going well for me on the football side of things – but the weather…"
Costa paused to laugh before continuing to AS: "Jose Mourinho’s great, I get on well with him, there’s no problems at all."
Costa will be yearning to disprove his critics after he failed to live up to his potential at the recent World Cup tournament in Brazil, where Spain were the first country to be eliminated.
“What happened is history now," he said. "Sometimes you win, and other times you lose – that’s football. We have to put it behind us and look forward to the future. With the national team we have, we could have gone much further in the tournament, or even won it but it wasn’t to be."
He added: “It’s very important that the coach counts on me and I am determined to do everything as best as I can so that I can continue coming here.
"I’ve got a point to prove; to play well and score."
