Diego Costa has reignited his feud with Antonio Conte by taking a swipe at his former boss prior to Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Barcelona.
Before the match at the Nou Camp, Costa uploaded a picture of the Chelsea line-up on his Instagram story, but scribbled out Conte’s name.
Costa had fallen out with Conte back in the summer after a text message from the Italian ended his Chelsea career and prompted him to go on strike in Brazil.
The Spaniard helped the Italian win the Premier League title before quitting to join Atletico Madrid.
Watching footage of the Blues take on Barcelona, he took a screenshot of the team but scribbled over the manager’s name before posting.
Costa presumably enjoyed the action as Barca romped to a 3-0 win at the Nou Camp to take their place in the Champions League quarter finals.
After a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, Lionel Messi netted the fastest goal of his career to pile the pressure on the visitors.
Costa has been plying his trade in the Europa League this season with Atleti 3-0 up after the first leg of their last-16 clash against Lokomotiv Moscow.
Despite Costa now being happily settled back in Spain, it seems the forward has still not forgiven Conte over their text message row.
