The joint leading goal scorer of Premier League 2014–15 Diego Costa could miss two weeks which includes crucial matches of Chelsea against Manchester United and Arsenal due to hamstring injury. The key player of British club is most likely to miss two weeks as he is fit to make any appearance in next games. The blues are still on top of the table and he has lots of credit behind Chelsea’s first spot.
Diego Costa could miss two weeks
Few days ago, the Spanish international missed international games against Netherlands and Ukraine. During match against Stoke City, he started on bench in second half and played just eleven minutes.
About his injury update, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said “It’s too early to determine how long he’ll be out, but it’ll be two weeks for sure. But we still have seven weeks of the season to go so, half of it, he has to be with us.”
Diego Costa didn’t recovered completely from last injury and his manager included him in last game. When Jose Mourinho was asked about his decision he replied “I wouldn’t say it was a gamble playing him because we did every test, and the muscle was clear. Te player trained two days, 100%”.
“The medical department were convinced he was ready. The player was convinced he was ready, not to play for 90 minutes but to help the team if needed.”
Mourinho also defended Chelsea’s medical team for allowing Costa to play. He said “A safe medical department can’t work with me: a department which says an injury of two weeks needs one or two months cannot work with me: people with fear who cannot take risks cannot work with me. They are fantastic, but today, between them, the player and myself, things didn’t happen the best way.”
