Atletico Madrid defender, Kieran Trippier has said Diego Costa is the funniest player he has ever played with.
Tripper left Spurs last summer, ending his four-year stint with the club and he has been talking about life at his new Spanish club.
According to the Tripper, there is more to Diego Costa than the aggressive and confrontational player we are all used to on our TV screens.
His words, “He calls me Rooney 10 times a day,
“He does it all the time, just for a laugh. But it’s Diego, I don’t care. We all find it funny and I like that he always makes jokes.
“I knew him from the Premier League and he’s the funniest player I’ve ever played with.
“There’s a great atmosphere here and everyone makes jokes, but Costa is the funniest.”
On life in Spain, “The adaptation has been perfect,”
“The weather is very pleasant, the food is incredible – better than in England.
“People are welcoming to me and my family and when they see me in Madrid; they tell me that I’m doing well.
“We can only thank everyone for making me feel at home so quickly, for making my family smile and making life easier.”
