Goal-shy Chelsea star backed by World Cup winning coach

Diego Costa may be struggling with Chelsea, but the Spaniard has the full backing of national manager Vicente Del Bosque, reports the Daily Express.

The Stamford striker netted 20 goals during his debut campaign in England, but has only scored once so far in Chelsea’s opening four Premier League fixtures.

He has also struggled to replicate his form with La Roja, after making the controversial decision to switch allegiances from his native Brazil.

‘We called up Diego because we believe in him’, stated the World Cup winning coach, before adding ‘we believe there’ll be a solution.’

The former Atletico star has toiled where he trail-blazed in front of goal at club level for the national side, finding the back of the net only once on seven occasions.

But ex-Real Madrid boss Del Bosque has defended Diego, believing ‘he did not play badly against Slovenia or against Luxemburg and he’s doing well with Chelsea.’

He moved to the Blues for £32m in 2014, after leading Atletico Madrid to the La Liga title ahead of cross city rivals Real, and defending champions Barcelona.
