Chelsea fine Costa for not training


                          Diego Costa


Chelsea have fined Diego Costa two weeks ’
wages for failing to return to training as the
dispute over his future rumbles on , according
to reports .

Costa , who remains in his home town of
Lagarto in Brazil , claimed in an interview with
the Daily Mail on Sunday that Chelsea are
treating him “ like a criminal ” and that he has
lost all personal respect for head coach Antonio
Conte over the Italian’ s handling of the
situation .

Conte informed Costa via text message in June
that he would not be in Chelsea ’ s plans for the
new season , though the club ’ s position is that
their striker and his representatives were
informed in January — when he was dropped
following a training - ground row and lucrative
offer from Chinese Super League club Tianjin
Quanjian — that his time at Stamford Bridge
was coming to an end.

Costa is adamant that he will only consider a
move back to former club Atletico Madrid , who
are banned by FIFA from registering new
players until January 2018 .

The Spain international was granted an extra
few days off when the rest of the Chelsea squad
gathered at Cobham for preseason training in
early July , but he has not come back since and
claimed on Sunday that the Premier League
champions have asked him to return and train
away from his teammates.

Sources at Chelsea have told ESPN FC that no
such condition has been laid out to Costa , and
insist that the club simply expect the 28 - year -
old to fulfill the terms of his contract by coming
back to training , regaining match fitness and
making himself available for selection .
