Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is very happy that Diego Costa isn’t going to take part in the international break and insisted that he will be in peak condition after being allowed to rest, Daily Star reports.
The 26-year-old was suffering from a hamstring injury in recent weeks and has already missed a few matches for the Blues this season, but played a important part against Liverpool by netting the crucial winner.
Mourinho was keen to keep Costa at Stamford Bridge despite Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque urging the striker to join him for the previous round of international fixtures, igniting an argument between the two managers.
However, the Spanish attacker is now ruled out of his nations match against Belarus and Germany as his manager declares states that his much needed rest will make him unstoppable when Mourinho’s side face West Bromwich Albion.
“I think Spain made a fantastic decision not just for us but for them,” he said.
“He has 15 days to get to the top of his game and when they need him they will get a good Diego not a bad one.
“Maybe the injury was good because it stopped him.
“When he became injured he had time to recover, step-by-step, and at this moment he is in a good condition.”
