One man of late who is seemingly afflicted with the ‘world on his shoulder’s syndrome is that of Chelsea’s Spanish international striker Diego Costa, who was blasted after another poor performance for Spain during their recent Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovakia.
One fellow international and Chelsea team mate is that of Pedro who joined Chelsea during this summer’s transfer window from Barcelona, and has quickly jumped in to defend his fellow club mate of any stinging criticism he has been receiving from certain quarters of the Spanish press and fans.
Speaking in defence of Diego Costa and whether or not he has adjusted to the Spanish national team, Pedro stated:
“I think Diego Costa is doing very well here in the selection, the only issue is he’s not having any luck in front of goal.
“But he creates a lot of space, he gives us solutions, the goals will come.
“I’m happy with my start at Chelsea. When you have more minutes to play you find another rhythm, and more confidence.”
There is no question that Diego Costa is a quality striker however at times he does appear to let himself down, and for someone of that caliber they need to be fully focusing on their game more and I’m sure Chelsea fans will be supportive of him not just for club level but for his international game also, and that those international goals for Spain will come for him.
