Diego Costa reveals he tried to hug ‘shy’ N’Golo Kante with no cloths on



CHELSEA icon Diego Costa has revealed he would strip naked and jokingly hug “shy” N’Golo Kante in the showers – as the French star wouldn’t take his underwear off.

The duo spent one and a half seasons together at Stamford Bridge following Kante’s arrival from Leicester City in 2016

Costa then returned to Atletico Madrid in January 2018, ending their stint in West London together.

The pair have two contrasting personalities but appear to have got on well.

And Costa, who is currently a free agent after a spell with Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, has provided an insight into his relationship with the loveable midfielder.

The fiery forward used to go into the team showers naked and try to hug “shy” Kante.

Speaking on Canal Pilhado, Costa said: “At Chelsea, I would try to hug Kante joking. He’s really shy.

“I would go all naked in the bath and be like: ‘Kante, give me a hug!’ and he would be all ‘No. no, Diego’.

“He doesn’t even take off his underwear to take a shower.”

Costa scored a remarkable 52 goals in 89 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.
