Antonio Conte

No one knows what would be running through Conte’s mind after he lost his job. Well, if many Blues were angry at his departure, one man won’t be remorseful.

Diego Costa was the pillar of Conte’s formally known indisputable 3:4:3 formation.

With his physical appearance and body balance, he was able to sustain the triumvirate of Eden Hazard and Pedro.

There was never going to be a better pair between Hazard and Costa.

Costa helped Conte win the league and scored vital goals when opponents thought they had gotten how to damage the 3:4:3 formation.

The former Chelsea player was topnotch in holding balls to connect easily with Hazard’s runs irrespective of the number of defenders but the ebb started after the Spanish player caught the eyes of Asian giants.

Conte was devastated as he sought for a potential replacement before Coast got pacified to continue with his team to win the league.

Conte’s anger was latent until the end of the Premier League when he sent Costa a text message that “he wasn’t in his plans.”

The Italian manager had thought of making a potential move for Romelu Lukaku as Costa’s replacement but he opted for Morata who looked like he would perform even better at first.

Costa made his return back to Atletico Madrid and led his teammates to the Europa cup final which they eventually won, while Conte led his team away from Champions league spot after missing vital chances with his twisted formation and rigid decision.

Many people may agree that if only Costa had been with the club, no way Conte would have lost his job.

Yesterday was yet another period to recall Costa’s hard work when he helped his team to defeat Monaco away from home of-cause he scored a brilliant goal yet again. The typical goal which Conte had celebrated often times while he was at Chelsea.
