Jose Mourinho on Diego Costa: If I comment a big suspension will be waiting for me


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho opted for a diplomatic "no comment" after a Football Association charge of violent conduct against striker Diego Costa was upheld.

The Spain international missed Wednesday's League Cup game against Walsall and will also be suspended for matches against Newcastle and Southampton.

But when asked to comment about the decision, the Portuguese preferred not to add fuel to the fire.

"I don't comment," Mourinho said.

"If I comment, bring examples, go deep and bring feelings into the discussion, a big suspension will be waiting for me. I don't want that, the team doesn't need that.

"The team lost an important player for three matches and they don't need to lose their manager, so I prefer to keep calm and quiet.

"Every time we lose a player it's not good for the team.

"I think it's easier to accept an injury. An injury is part of the game and we have to be mentally ready for it.

"This situation goes deeper in feelings. Obviously the team is hurt but as I was saying although I don't play, score goals, and tackle, my communication on the pitch is positive for the team, so I prefer to be quiet."
