Mourinho frustrated by Costa injury
20 Oct 2014 14:02
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has spoken of his discontent about uncommunicative national team managers amid continuing injury concerns over striker Diego Costa.
-
Spain striker Costa is out of tomorrow's Champions League Group G clash with Maribor with a hamstring problem that has plagued him this season.
-
Mourinho believes it was exacerbated by playing against Slovakia and Luxembourg during the international break this month and took a swipe at Spain boss Vicente del Bosque.
-
"It's the same problem that he's having, but now an injury, not an almost injury," said Mourinho, who is uncertain when Costa will return.
-
"It's simple. He's not training because he's not in condition to do it.
-
"Tomorrow he cannot play. Let's see what happens for next weekend, but next weekend is not important.
-
"I don't have Manchester United [on Sunday in the Premier League] in mind. I have Maribor in mind."
-
Costa has scored nine goals in seven Premier League games, but was absent for Saturday's win at Crystal Palace.
