The last few weeks have seen Antonio Conte looking like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. It`s been hard to watch, but today`s press conference has seen the Italian, not only crack a smile, but break into a fit of laughter..

So, what was the question that started the hilarity. Well it`s just another episode in the Diego Costa saga. Conte was simply asked his opinion about the fact that Costa believed he was being treated like a ‘criminal` and he had to return to Atletico Madrid. You can have a look at the clip on The Guardian website, and if you haven`t seen it, do watch it, it really will make you smile.

Further questioning followed and Conte was asked ‘if Costa were to return to Chelsea, got fit and ready for team selection, would he be picked.` Conte was adamant he would not.

As for Costa, himself, he has been in the gym, on the treadmill, happily running along in his Chelsea shorts. Costa has said he won`t be coming back to Chelsea and as Sky Sports report he`s been pleading with Chelsea to drop the price they are willing to sell him to Atletico for.

There really is only one reaction to the ridiculous way Diego Costa is handling this whole transfer situation and Antonio Conte has pretty much nailed it.

  • Oh, yeah… That was very good. I have a feeling the rest of the story is gonna break soon. That reaction was very telling. Nobody laughs like that unless they know something really choice. I honestly can’t wait to hear it.

  • If I were a betting man, I’d wager that there’s something nasty they don’t want let out until he’s sold.

  • Ever since Burnley, Conte has looked and spoken more like last season, focusing on the job at hand. Bursting into laughter on the Costa question was a delight to watch. Let’s hope the mood in the camp is similarly upbeat and we can come away with a result on Sunday. #upthechels #forzaConte

  • I too feel his mood is much much better & this can only be because things are finally improving …. Looks like Baka & Hazard returns are imminent , and maybe he’s been told by the board that they are making headway with some targets .

  • That cheered me up, Conte has an infectious laugh. Let’s hope he has the last laugh tomorrow!!
