Former Chelsea bad boy Costa spotted driving round streets of Brazil in tractor

Former Chelsea star Diego Costa has been spotted driving the streets of Brazil on a tractor.

The snarling striker has got in touch with his agricultural side since returning to his home country earlier this year.

After being released by Atletico Madrid last season, Costa found it tough to find a new club and there were even rumours that he could return to the Premier League.

But Atletico Mineiro managed to snap him up and it has been a grand success after the Spain international led them to their first league title in 50 years.

Despite being a world-renowned star these days, Costa has not let the fame get to his head.

And footage has emerged of the former Blues star riding around town in his tractor.

The 33-year-old was spotted with his three kids in the vehicle, arriving for his latest match.

Costa garnered a reputation as a super-aggressive striker during his time at Stamford Bridge, which worked to massive effect.

He scored 59 times across 120 appearances, including his first season which saw him net 20 times in 26 Premier League matches – landing the title in the process in 2015 under Jose Mourinho.

That year the Blues also beat Tottenham in the Carabao Cup while two years later Costa would lift the Premier League trophy once more under the tutelage of Antonio Conte.

However, a major fallout between the two would see Costa return to Atletico Madrid but his second spell at the club was not as fruitful up front where he even received an eight-match ban for abusing a referee.

During his time at Chelsea, he received 26 yellow cards in the Premier League but was never sent off – though he did see red when he appeared to bite Gareth Barry when the Blues took on Everton in the FA Cup.
