Diego Costa’s brother talks temper issues
The elder brother of Chelsea striker Diego Costa, Jair Costa, has spoken about the player’s temper issues.
Costa is currently serving a 3-match ban after Chelsea’s match against Arsenal, and his elder brother says he’s always been a hothead.
“This isn’t something new. It’s the same old story,” Jair told The Sun on Sunday. “It’s hard for Diego to change a habit of a lifetime. He always loses his temper easily and ends up in fights when he plays football.
“As brothers we’ve always been close but always fought over football because we were so passionate about trying to be better than the other.”
“He never wants to be beaten and as a child if his team lost or he disagreed with a foul, he would fly into a rage ending up in scraps with his opponent.”
Costa has already served 2 of his 3-game suspension, with the last one Chelsea’s home game against Southampton next Saturday.
