Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa, has said that his team-mate Antoine Griezmann, would have gotten a massive raise in his new contract with the club.
He called him “a bastard”.
Griezmann ended speculation about his future last week, by confirming he will be staying at the Wanda Metropolitano.
He has already put pen to paper on a new deal, along with France team-mates Lucas Hernandez and Thomas Lemar also inking new deals with the club.
Costa said he always knew his strike partner would remain with Atletico.
“I haven’t seen the documentary, but I knew what was the end. When it takes so long to make a decision it’s because he was going to stay,” he told Onda Cero .
“I knew that he identified very much with the fans, with the people, with us. I was delighted.
“The b*stard will have received good money.”
Costa himself made a return to the LaLiga side last September, signing a deal until 2021.
