Ex-Chelsea hothead Diego Costa has recalled the time he stripped down to his birthday suit in a bid to wind up his shy teammate.

The Spanish international spent three-and-a-half years as a Chelsea player where his reputation as being loud, angry and open really flourished. This is a stark contrast to his French teammate at the time who is renowned for being a humble and subdued player who keeps himself to himself.

Costa, who is currently a free agent, opened up about his time at Chelsea during a chat with YouTuber Canal Philhado where he revealed how he managed to wind up the quiet midfielder while naked in the shower. He said during the live chat: "At Chelsea, I would try to hug Kante joking.

"He's really shy. I would go all naked in the bath and be like: 'Kante, give me a hug!' and he would be all 'No. no, Diego'. He doesn't even take off his underwear to take a shower."

The divisive striker previously opened up on Kante's influence on the Chelsea team months before he left Stamford Bridge, with him labelling his teammate as the "heart" of the team. N'Golo Kante has won a number of plaudits since his rise to the top during Leicester City's title-winning season in 2015-16.

The now 31-year-old is a pivotal part of Thomas Tuchel's team, with Kante now boasting an admirable medal collection since winning the league with relegation favourites Leicester. Diego Costa, however, is currently without a club after the Brazilian-born forward had his contract cut short with Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro last year.

Costa scored an impressive 52 goals for Chelsea as he led the line to two league titles in 2015 and 2017 before falling out of favour with the manager at the time Antonio Conte.
