With all the leading news sources offering their version of events following the huge revelation that Antonio Conte has no plans for Diego Costa to be part of his squad next season, something a leading tabloid publication has run with has grabbed my attention.

According to the good folk of the leading tabloid publication this nation produces, The Sun, Diego Costa wasn`t too pleased to be told he was being, as they so politely put it these days, let go.

It seems that the 28-year-old striker was determined to not go down without a fight.

With that being the case, our referenced source is championing the suggestion that, in order to save his Chelsea career, Diego pleaded with our wonderful owner, Roman Abramovich, to be allowed to remain at Stamford Bridge.

However, one suspects, Diego Costa`s plea was always going to fall on deaf ears.

Having watched on as Chelsea regained the Premier League title, Roman knows full well that he has to back his manager, that he cannot be seen to reverse decisions for fear of severely upsetting the status quo.

Whilst managers have come and gone with an alarming degree of regularity over the years, Roman knows only too well that Antonio has turned the club around both on and off the pitch.

His tactical-nous has been widely appreciated by the media and the days when Chelsea were regularly on the back-page for all the wrong reasons have vanished.

In fact, you could be churlish and suggest that the last possible cause of Chelsea possibly becoming back-page news for all the wrong reasons is about to be removed from the payroll!
