As polarizing a figure he truly is, Diego Costa sure can “ball.” He has 14 goals, to lead the entire premier league this season. In 19 games this season, he’s achieved a 126′ minutes per goal average to go along with 5 assists. He’s the EPL leading scorer, and quite possibly the league player of the year.
Thus he’s attracting the interest of the Chinese Super League, which is offering him Costa an egregiously exorbitant contract, £500,000 per week, $36,000,000 per year. Once Costa became aware of this possibility, he was no longer training in the manner that the team wanted, and then the trouble began.Follow paulmbanks
