Diego Costa blames Chelsea players

Zouma is over thinking this thing. The defender has revealed that he apologised to Costa personally for mistakenly calling him a cheat.

Costa was heavily criticized for being overly physical in Chelsea’s 2-0 loss over Arsenal and later in an interview, Zouma was quoted saying that his teammate “likes to cheat a lot”.

Zouma quickly took to Twitter, posting an apology and has since spoken to Costa, who is currently serving a three-match ban for his clash with Koscielny.

“I spoke to him and said, ‘Sorry, mate’ because I didn’t want to say that,” Zouma told the Evening Standard.

“English is not my first language, so I did not mean it. He told me: ‘It’s OK, no problem. I know what you wanted to say’.

“I didn’t remember what I said and I didn’t expect it to come out like it did. It was a mistake and I am really sorry for it. It is my second year in England and my English is not perfect. Everybody can do mistakes. This day, I did.

“I never thought Diego is a cheat. He is a friend. I like this guy. On the pitch he gives everything for the club and the team. I hope he will continue like this. He should not change.

“Diego is a really nice guy. People just don’t see it. He is clever because he likes to put a guy off his game, so he loses control. Diego knows what he has to do.

“In training he jokes a lot. He is so friendly. Diego is the craziest guy in the club. He is too funny. Everybody is very happy to have Diego in the team.”
