CHELSEA striker Diego Costa knows a song that will get on your nerves and is happy to demonstrate how it goes.
The former Atletico Madrid striker has scored 17 goals this season, thanks to defenders being too irritated to mark him for longer than eight minutes at a time.
Swansea defender Ashley Williams said: “When we played them, he sang it over and over again while jabbing his elbow into my ribs on the downbeat.
“I might not like what Costa’s doing, but I have to admit he’s very good at it.”
Retired professional Bill McKay, aged 66, said: “In my day, we didn’t have songs that got on people’s nerves. Songs that got on your nerves were a foreign thing, like diving, spitting and the three-pass move.”
“When I marked Stanley Matthews in 1959, he sang Abide With Me in a lovely velvet baritone. These days they mostly do DJ Otzi and that one about Amarillo. Where’s the respect?”
Jose Mourinho said: “It is a lovely song. I hum it often to myself in the technical area, especially when we’re playing Arsenal.
“And Diego also knows the song in Spanish, French, Portugese, German, Italian, and the Slavic languages.
“What a professional.”
