Diego Costa made his ‘special’ return to Stamford Bridge with new club Wolves on Saturday and was on the losing end.

Costa scored 59 goals in 120 games for the Blues, helping the west London club win two Premier League titles and the League Cup.

However, he left Chelsea in 2017 in bitter circumstances, returning to Atletico Madrid after falling out with the west London side’s then-boss Conte.

During Saturday’s game, he received a standing ovation from the Chelsea fans when he was substituted in the second half.

And, reflecting on that moment after the game, Costa couldn’t resist throwing a dig at his former manager at Stamford Bridge.

‘I’ve never had a problem with the fans,’ he told reporters after the game.

‘My problem was not with the crowd, it was with that coach. I left in bad terms with that manager, I left a champion for the second time, and he didn’t count on me.

‘That was nothing I could do. I had to leave. Today showed that I did not leave on bad terms with the fans.

‘It’s very special. It’s the feeling that in the time that you spent here, you did good work and left good memories.

‘Chelsea fans always treated me very well. I was always surprised by the way they treated me. It’s satisfying.’

When Costa was subbed off, Blues fans started singing the 34-year-old’s name, and he walked around the perimeter of the pitch after coming off, a route which took him right in front of the diehard Chelsea fans in the Matthew Harding Stand, who cheered loudly for him.

The home side beat Costa’s new club 3-0 thanks to goals from Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, and Armando Broja.
