​Ex-Chelsea boss Mourinho brands Diego Costa an 'animal'

Jose Mourinho spoke about his former striker Diego Costa in a recent word association game.

Costa was part of Mourinho's Chelsea team during his second spell at the club, helping the Blues to the Premier League title.

And during a word association game with LiveScore, Mourinho was asked to say a single word to describe events or people in the game.

When he was asked about Costa, his response was "animal."

Costa has often been praised for his tenacity and intensity, which made him a nightmare for Premier League defenders.

Other players Mourinho mentioned include John Terry (leader), Didier Drogba (legend), Michael Essien (son), Cristiano Ronaldo (goal), and Lionel Messi (magic).
