The Spain international has yet to return to London since the conclusion of the 2016-17 campaign, with Conte having been clear over his stance that Costa was surplus to requirements.

And referencing the reported text message that the Italian sent the player at the end of last season, Costa expressed his annoyance at his manager’s failure to speak to him in person.

“Conte’s text? It was a moment of madness. It can happen, but I thought it was disrespectful,” he told MC News.
I always asked to speak face to face with the coach and the board. I never sent [them] text messages, so it shows what kind of person he is. he added that “If something makes me sad about this situation, it’s [the fans’] affection as they’d always supported me, even during the delicate moments.”
