More About Diego Costa by Fran Guillen
 
 
 
Overview
Diego Costa has gone from relative obscurity in Spanish football to one of the best and most controversial strikers in the world at Chelsea all in the space of a couple of years. During that period, he also turned his back on the country of his birth, Brazil, to represent Spain, subsequently appearing for La Roja at the 2014 World Cup to a soundtrack of boos from infuriated Brazilian fans. Costa s career has been a slow-burning one. He was frequently loaned out to other Spanish teams by parent club Atletico Madrid. But during that period, as he suffered in the shadow of Atletico s star young striker, Sergio Aguero, he was also learning how to harness his enormous talent. Then, in season 2013-14, he exploded onto the scene, scoring 35 goals and inspiring his side to win La Liga and reach the final of the Champions League, where they lost to Real Madrid after Costa limped out of the action with an injury which would hang over his World Cup summer. His switch to Chelsea for season 2014-15 has seen him score in nine consecutive matches. "Diego Costa: The Art of War" covers every aspect of his career, from growing up in Brazil, to the fallow years when he learned his trade and then his astonishing impact on world football over the past two years. There are over 80 interviews, including big names such as Vicente Del Bosque, Cesc Fabregas, Sergio Ramos, Koke and more."
