Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa credits form to Simeone

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa credits coach Diego Simeone for his stunning form.

Diego Costa scored twice in Vienna to take his tally for the season to 12 goals in all competitions.

The Brazilian was named the Liga BBVA player of the month for September, but highlighted the role of his coach in getting the best out of him and his team.

"Simeone has transmitted the winning mentality that he has inside himself to us, that desire to win every single game," Costa told the league's official website.

"He has instilled in us the energy we needed."
