Striker Diego Costa has vowed to do his utmost to deliver trophies for Chelsea.

The Brazil-born Spain striker joined the Blues from Atletico Madrid, who he helped to a first Primera Division title in 18 years, breaking the duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona.


Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea are chasing a first Premier League crown since 2010 when the new season kicks off next month.

Costa carries a heavy burden, with Mourinho bemoaning his strikers last term and Chelsea’s forward recruits having a history of struggling to make a prolonged impression, Didier Drogba apart.

Costa said: “I’d say to the fans that you need to be confident that I personally will fight for this club to make sure we are in contention to win as many trophies as possible

“I’m part of a great group here of players and we will do everything we can to give the fans what they want – and that’s titles.”

“It was an easy decision for me to make,” he added. “We have some of the best players in the world, the best manager in the world and it’s a club with great history.”

Mourinho wants Costa to per­form the way he did for Atletico and the striker believes his attributes mean he is suited to the Premier League.

“One of the main things he (Mourinho) said was that he doesn’t want me to change,” added Costa, who scored 64 goals in 134 appearances for Atletico.

“It was Jose’s and the club’s deci­sion to buy me and the reason they signed me was because of the way I played at Atletico.”

Costa is with the Chelsea team in Austria but didn’t get on the pitch on Wednesday as they drew 1-1 with WAC RZ Pellets.

Costa’s former Atletico team-mate Felipe Luis started at left-back with teenage French midfielder Jeremie Boga scoring the Blues’ only goal.
