Atletico Madrid attacker Diego Costa has joked about the arrival of Luis Suarez to the club.

Last week, Atletico Madrid signed Luis Suarez from Barcelona in a €6m (£5.5m) deal thus leading to the union of football’s biggest pantomime villains.

The former Chelsea striker was asked about the arrival of Luis Suarez from Spanish La Liga rivals and his answer was controversial as expected.

According to him via the Daily Mirror, one bites and the other kicks.

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been involved in several biting incidents in the past, while Diego Costa is notoriously known for kicking opponents on the football pitch.

The two players got off to a good start at the weekend as they were both on the scoresheet in the first league game of the season for Atletico Madrid.

Diego Costa scored the opening goal of the game as Atletico Madrid thrashed Granada 6-1 at home.

On his part, Luis Suarez came off the bench to score two goals and also provide an assist in a little less than 20 minutes.

Uruguayan international Suarez was signed by Atletico Madrid as a direct replacement for Alvaro Morata who has joined Italian Serie A club Juventus on loan for the season.
