Chelsea snub Costa of CL squad

Exiled striker Diego Costa was not included in Chelsea’s 25-man squad for the Champions League group phase on Monday.


Costa, 28, has been frozen out by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and spent the transfer window angling for a return to former club Atletico Madrid that never materialised.


By not including Costa in their squad, Chelsea have ensured he will not become cup-tied, meaning he could play in the competition for another team in the second part of the season.
