Diego Simeone believes that Diego Costa is the most important player to Atletico Madrid in recent years.
With an assist for Carrasco in the 3-0 win over Lleida, winning 7-0 on aggregate, Costa has been involved in three goals.
Since his eligibility to play, the Spain international striker has scored two goals and assisted one.
Costa, has also led the Rojiblancos to La Liga glory and the first of two UCL finals in the 2013-14.
And Simeone was quick to lavish praise on the striker following Tuesday’s win at the Wanda Metropolitano.
“I have no doubt that Costa was the most important player that has played for Atletico in recent years,” said the coach.
