Diego Costa: “I’m not a one-dimensional player”


Diego Costa has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the near future, as Chelsea prepare to look to bolster their defence.

The Blues are believed to be open to selling their top scorer and they are also believed to have interest in Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.

But the 31-year-old said that his focus remains on the Premier League title and added that he does not have a one dimensional role to play.

“I think we have a few players who can do that, but we have to decide what the team needs, and that is to win games, and it’s hard to see any way that I can be a part of that, no matter what I am playing for,” he said.

“It’s a good competition, but I’m not one of them.

I’m here to play and I want to win.

The team needs a player like me.”

If I have to go somewhere else, then it’s a different game.

But I don’t see a future for me there.
