STRIKER Chelsea Diego Costa memilih berlatih sendirian di markas Cobham mereka pada Senin pagi lantaran 'adu mulut' dengan pelatih cemerlang Antonio Conte.

Striker Brasil itu berlatih hanya didampingi seorang pelatih Chelsea, mengambil bola sendiri dan bahkan berlatih menendang tendangan bebas sendirian karena dia berlatih tanpa rekan-rekannya di tengah hujan lebat selama satu jam.

Ini adalah pertama kalinya Costa terlihat berada di pusat pelatihan di Cobham sejak ia dicoret dari skuad untuk kemenangan akhir pekan 3-0 atas Leicester City.

Sportsmail mengungkapkan pada Jumat bahwa Costa  terlibat bentrokan dengan pelatih Antonio Conte lantaran masalah kebugaran dan pemain timnas Spanyol ini ngotot ogah latihan karena masalah pada punggungnya.

Pemain yang diincar Liga Super Cina dan ditawari bayaran 35 juta poundsterling setahun dketahui tidak akur dengan Conte, sementara Costa berupaya bertahan di London sejak bergabung di Stamford Bridge pada 2014.

Conte yang, setelah bergabung dengan Chelsea sejak musim lalu, meyakini bahwa sang striker harus bertahan di Chelsea dan menolak tawaran dari mantan klubnya Atletico Madrid.

Conte, pelatih asal Italia diketahui berupaya mengembalikan penampilan terbaik Costa - setelah mencetak 14 gol di Liga Premier Inggris (EPL) musim ini - tapi dia terbukti tidak mungkin mentolerir sikap membandel Costa dan puncaknya kemarahan Conte terjadi pekan lalu.

Hal ini diyakini Conte ingin sgera mengakhiri konflik berkepanjangan dengan mengatakan kepada Costa 'lebih baik hengkang ke China' tapi pemilik Chelsea Roman Abramovich mempertahankan masa depan Costa bersama Chelsea, sehingga jelas dia tidak akan dijual pada transfer window saat ini seperti dilansir MailOnline.

CHELSEA striker Diego Costa trained in isolation at their Cobham headquarters on Monday morning as the fallout from his blazing row with Antonio Conte continued.

The Brazilian striker was accompanied by just one Chelsea coach, retrieved his own balls and even moved the free-kick apparatus by himself as he practised without his team-mates in heavy rain for an hour.

It is the first time Costa has been pictured training at Cobham since he was dropped from the squad for the weekend 3-0 victory over Leicester City.

Sportsmail revealed on Friday that Costa had been involved in a furious row with Antonio Conte over his fitness with the Spain international insisting he could not train due to lower back problems.

Interest from the Chinese Super League and an offer of £35m-a-year in wages is understood to have unsettled Costa, who has struggled to settle in London since arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2014.

It was Conte who, after taking charge in the summer, convinced the striker to stay with the Blues and reject interest from his former club Atletico Madrid.

The Italian has since helped Costa rekindle his best form - he has scored 14 Premier League goals this season - but he has proved impossible to manage at times and overstepped the mark last week.

It is believed Conte ended the blazing argument by telling the striker to 'go to China' but Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has already drawn a line under his future, making it clear he will not be sold in the current transfer window.
