Chelsea’s boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is not sure if Spain international striker Diego Costa would be fit for saturday EPL game against Swansea after the 26-year old star picked up a hamstring injury during Chelsea’s pre-season tour game against Barcelona.
Speaking during his post-match new conference after Chelsea’s defeat to Fiorentina, the Blues boss made it known that it was not within his power to tell when Costa will get back to play.
“I don’t risk my reputation again. You asked me before last weekend and I told you he’s ready to play and he wasn’t. I don’t know [if he will be fit for Saturday], to be fair.
“I don’t risk to say yes and I don’t risk to say no. I don’t know, that’s the truth.
“Friday is the day before the game and I think I will tell you I don’t know. I will try to understand but it was a surprise for me that he couldn’t play on the weekend.”
However, the news was not as splendid on Victor Moses and Eden Hazard after the Belgian star appeared to be limping off the pitch after coming on to replace the Nigerian winger who had an eye injury.
“Hopefully no injuries,” he continued. “I saw Hazard limping but I don’t think it was a problem.
“I prefer not to comment on the Victor [Moses] situation but no problem, he has no injury.”
