Chelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the latest coming from Sky Sports, who seem to think that the Blues now think there is a campaign against Diego Costa.
According to Jose Mourinho, the FA and media want the forward banned and will try and derail his season in any way possible.
Now as one of our regulars quips over a beer and burger, we think that is ironic considering Mourinho did not even bother to find a top forward in the summer, instead bringing in the flop Radamel Falcao, so if he envisaged Costa being banned all the time, surely he would have been looking for a more adequate replacement!
The Blues have stalled this season, and we don’t think talk like this from their manager is helping much – our landlord feels that Mourinho is started to panic and is coming out with some rash remarks!
Chelsea fans. Is there a campaign against Mourinho and Costa or are you just trying to deflect blame once again? Let us know your thoughts below!
