Diego Costa desirous to play for Atletico after lengthy layoff

Diego Costa scored and was sent off on his LaLiga return as Atletico Madrid beat Getafe 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano. The Brazilian-born Spain striker grabbed the area around his right knee and limped off the pitch to be attended by team medics.

That was his first appearance for Atletico since returning to the club from Chelsea last summer, with the Rojiblancos unable to register any new players until this month due to a FIFA-imposed transfer ban.

Antoine Griezmann had a chance in the 11th minute to sent the home side ahead after finding space on the edge of the box but his curling shot missed wide.

Costa helped Chelsea win the English Premier league title last season before he fell out of favor with coach Antonio Conte.

"I'm really happy to feel like a footballer again and play once more with Atletico Madrid".


It's one of football's more controversial laws, which can spoil heat of the moment celebrations, as we saw in the Premier League when Raheem Sterling was given a second yellow card in Manchester City's match vs Bournemouth for celebrating his 96th minute victor with the fans.

Getafe threatened to pull a goal back with 10 minutes left to play on the clock but Simeone's charges were organised at the back despite playing with 10 men.

Having opened his account in the Copa Del Rey clash against Lleida midweek off the bench, the Spanish global was given the start for the league game.

"Costa gave us what we need from him, speed, determination and physical strength", Simeone said. "I am exhausted of training, I want to play".
