Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis: Diego Costa BETTER than Hazard

Published on: 13 October 2017

Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis insists Diego Costa is a superior player to Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.

Luis played with both men at Chelsea.

“(Costa) is the best I have played with," he told El Mundo.

“I have seen (Juan Carlos) Valeron do things nobody could do. Neymar and (Eden) Hazard are amazing talents, but the player who gave me most trophies was Diego Costa.

“He always scores the opening goal. Because it is one thing to score 30 goals with hat-tricks in easy wins, and another that 20 of those 30 goals are enough to win 1-0. Nobody does that as well as Diego Costa."
