Former England and Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has blasted Chelsea centre forward Diego Costa for his unruly behavior in the last premier league match.
Diego Costa was an un-used substitute in the match against Tottenham on Sunday at White Hart Lane after being dropped to the bench for the first time this season except when injured.
Costa threw his bib at his manager Jose Mourinho after he had been asked to jog for about 15 minutes and was not included in the match. Infuriated Costa threw his bib at his manager showing his displeasure with the decision of Mourinho.
Paul Scholes has however lambaste him, saying the only thing he [Costa] his good at, is causing chaos and fighting opponents.
This is what he’s good at, when he’s fighting – I won’t say at his best, but it’s what he’s good at. He’d cause a row in an empty house. I think (he’s been dropped) because he’s not been playing well enough. It’s pretty obvious from last year, when you look at the stats – he’s scored nowhere near the amount of goals, and he just hasn’t contributed. We know he’s a very good centre forward, he’s at his best when he’s fighting, when he’s arguing, when he’s kicking, but when he’s not scoring goals with that, it stands out. But if the goals aren’t coming with that, it just looks stupid. It’s a lack of effort.
Paul Scholes, 41, is the most decorated English footballer of all time, and one of the most successful footballers in history, having won a total of 25 trophies, featuring 11 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles.
