This one drew up a laugh in the Football Transfer Tavern…
For all of his exploits on the pitch at Chelsea, the English language is one skill that has evaded Diego Costa so far during his tenure at Chelsea.
Despite having been in the country for several years, Costa is not quite as adept in English as we had all hoped – and it has left him open for a fair bit of criticism amongst the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
However, whilst his inability to speak English might hamper his performance on the pitch somewhat – it is continuing to bring hilarious moments off of it.
In a recent skit for Chelsea TV, Eden Hazard took up the role of chief interviewer for the Blues – and called Diego Costa over to discuss a recent goal for the club.
In an effort to describe what he calls a ‘beautiful’ goal, Costa lets out a bizarre sound that we can only assume is his way of saying that he likes it.

Diego Costa here. Got to love his first response of barking like a dog. I believe this to be Diego Costa language for "I beg your pardon?" pic.twitter.com/x2u9gMPkWt

Was that a bark? Our landlord has absolutely no idea!
If only he was as good at speaking English as he was at scoring goals…
The Chelsea fans don’t mind his lack of English if he keeps scoring at his current rate, though!
Chelsea fans – thoughts?
