Diego Costa: I am no angel, I will not change my style of football


Chelsea striker Diego Costa says he will not change his style of football after returning from suspension last week.

The Brazilian-born was one of the best players on the pitch against Aston Villa as he was making his return from a three-match suspension.

And he insists that he will not change his aggressive side as the Blues prepare to face West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

"I've got this far thanks to the way I play the game," Costa told the BBC.

"I'm not going to change that because of what people may think of it.

"I think that football has always had a passionate, aggressive side, with players giving their all. People have to get used to this.

"Some people seem to think football is like theatre, and that everyone has to play the good guy.

"But I think that you transform when you cross the white line, you're not the same person as off it. I give no quarter and I ask for none. Out there I'm going to fight for my team and do the best I can.

"Afterwards, when the match is over, I have my family and my friends. I have fun like a normal person. But on the pitch don't try and put wings on me, as I am no angel."
