Diego Costa Sent A Hilarious Message To John Terry After His Retirement

John Terry was subject to tributes and messages galore after calling time on his glittering career in the game, but nothing is getting anywhere near the one Diego Costa posted on Instagram.

The 30-year old spent just over three years at Chelsea, scoring 59 goals in 120 games for the club and winning two Premier League titles alongside captain Terry.

But while he spent a good amount of time in the capital as Terry's teammate, Costa didn't pick up English very well and hilariously admitted he never understood a single word the former England skipper said.

"Congrats on your fantastic and successful career," the Spain international wrote on Instagram. Thank you for all you've done for me during my years at @chelseafc (although I couldn't understand a single word you said to me).

"I wish you all the best in this new chapter of your life. Thanks 'My Capitation' hahahaha."

As far as farewells go, they really don't get much better than that.

Terry looked like he was heading to Spartak Moscow for a final career move, but he eventually turned down the move after getting cold feet.

And after calling time on his career a few days back, it was confirmed last night that Terry has returned to Aston Villa as assistant manager following the recent sacking of Steve Bruce as manager.

Terry, who made 36 appearances for the club in 2017/18, was thought to teaming up with Thierry Henry but the Arsenal legend now looks poised to take the Monaco job.

Instead, 'JT' will be right-hand man to former Walsall and Brentford boss Dean Smith, a lifelong Villa fan.
