Diego Costa: I’m happy at Atletico

Diego Costa celebrates his winnerDiego Costa insists he is happy at Atletico Madrid despite a £21.8m bid from Liverpool for the 24-year-old Brazil international last week.

After scoring 20 goals in 44 matches for Atletico last season, Costa has attracted the attention of a lot of big clubs, but he says is not looking to move away from the Vicente Calderon and is keen to stay with the Rojiblancos if they want him to.

“I’m well here, I’m happy here,” he was quoted as saying after returning to Madrid with Atletico from their pre-season tour to South America.

“As I’ve been in Argentina and Uruguay I’ve not heard anything about this.

“I’m happy here, if the club want me to be here, I’m going to be here. I think that the coach (Diego Simeone) counts on all of us, not just me. He knows how important it is to maintain the squad, the fans know it as well.”
