Terry backs Costa to thrive at Chelsea

Chelsea captain John Terry believes that Diego Costa will do well at Stamford Bridge, judging by his prior altercation with the former Atletico Madrid striker, the Daily Mail has reported.

Costa this week wrapped up a £32m move to the Blues having helped Atletico to the Spanish title last season, the Champions League final and won a place in the Spain World Cup squad. Costa and Atletico took on Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals and he and Terry almost came to blows - which Terry has taken as evidence Costa will be fine in the Premier League.


“First of all, his movement and his strength are really good - I was really surprised by it,” Terry said. “I think everyone remembers the square-up we had in the first 10 minutes of the first leg of our semi-final game against Atletico Madrid last season, after which I thought "fair play."”


Costa is likely to be joined at Chelsea by Atletico teammate Filipe Luis, the Brazilian left-back for whom Chelsea yesterday confirmed they had agreed a fee. Former Chelsea midfielder Tiago has meanwhile been linked with a return to the club after his Atletico contract expired, while goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is back in London after three years on loan in the Spanish capital.


Terry elaborated on why he feels Costa will adapt quickly to English football, pointing to the Brazil-born forward’s physical qualities. “He holds the ball up very well, he has got great movement and he is really physical, but he is very clever with his strength and the way he uses his body,” the captain said. “I think he could be a very good signing for us.”
