Conte laughs at Costa accusations

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has laughed at accusations by Diego Costa that he was treating the striker like a criminal.

Costa had attacked Conte’s character in a recent interview, before criticising Chelsea for pricing him out of a return to Atletico Madrid.

“I prefer to laugh, it is great,” replied the former Italy CT when asked about the ‘criminal’ comment at a Press conference.

“I can tell you everyone who works at Chelsea knows what happened with him last season.

“It is funny this interview. I am not interested in continuing this issue. For me, it is the past. Stop.”
