Aston Villa assistant coach John Terry has spoken on the perception of former Diego Costa by his former Chelsea teammates.
The Spanish striker was perceived as being arrogant which made him fallout with some of his teammates at the Stamford Bridge before his return back to Spanish side Athletico Madrid.
According to Terry, the former Chelsea striker was being misunderstood by his teammates, adding that the negative perception of the player by his former Chelsea side was wrong.
Terry who spoke on Sky One’s A League of Their Own on Thursday night argued that the Spanish player was never arrogant and one of the nicest players he has ever met.
He added that the player proves to be an animal on the pitch because of his fighting spirit but very nice off the pitch.
He gave instances of how the controversial player can elbow his teammate say “what have i done wrong” but that does not take it from him as being a good guy.
Costa is known to be a great fighter who does all it takes to win on the pitch and also to defend his side.
The Athletico Madrid player was involved in series of controversies and fights with opposite players during his stay with the West London club.
