Marcos Alonso wishes Diego Costa never left Chelsea

Chelsea star Marcos Alonso has named the one teammate he wished had never left the club.

Alonso has been with the Blues for a few years, and he has seen some of his teammates move on to other adventures.

And he was asked about those who he wished were still at the club.

During a social media Q&A, Alonso said on the matter: "The beast himself and my good friend, Diego Costa."

Costa was a key player for Chelsea, and helped them win the Premier League under both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

But the Italian was not a fan of his antics, and reportedly told him in the summer via text message that he was not in his plans any longer.

A protracted transfer to Atletico Madrid was completed in 2017.
