Diego Costa is called to meet Liverpool

first_imgThe striker played his last ten minutes on November 10 in a match against Espanyol. A cervical disc herniation made him go through the operating room and since then he has been convalescent with the aim of being able to help the team in this knockout round of the Champions League against Liverpool. The team missed him, so much that the club tried to sign a substitute in the January market. Cavani was the goal, but the ten million offer made by the rojiblancos could not move the Uruguayan from there. Now the Champions returns and Costa returns to the call. History repeats itself. Last season the striker was also intervened, this time on a toe, and arrived in February. The difference is that this time he could play half an hour in the League match against Lightning, before being in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Juventus.Simeone then played the mistake and included the starting battering team against the Turinese, although he acknowledged that he was not ready to play the 90 minutes. Costa played one of his best games in Atlético and was substituted, but saw a yellow that prevented him from playing the lap. The list of summoned to be measured with Liverpool tomorrow is formed by: Oblak, Adam, Arias, Lodi, Giménez, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Thomas, Koke, Saúl, Lemar, Vitolo, Llorente, Carrasco, Morata, Correa and Costa. João Félix, Herrera and Trippier are left out. Diego Costa returns to Atlético’s call, just when he is most needed. The presence of the forward has been confirmed by Simeone at a press conference. “It has been improving. It is growing, training enthusiastically, it is among the 19 concentrated players and has the opportunity tomorrow to play the game,” explained the Argentine coach.last_img read more
