Diego Costa Floors Chelsea's Physio In Never-Seen-Before Pre-Season Clip
Former Chelsea captain John Terry has posted a hilarious throwback clip of former Blues striker Diego Costa.
The Spanish striker, who spent three years at Stamford Bridge between 2014 and 2017, was known for his antics off the field, as well as on it.
And in perhaps the funniest clip to date, Costa was filmed taking part in a boxing fight against legendary physio Billy McCulloch.
Terry confirms the clip was recorded in 2015 during pre-season but apart from that, we don't really know the context behind what is a typically bonkers moment from the 31-year-old, who now plays for Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea physio McCulloch is another character known for his antics behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.
Back in 2014, for example, the Scotsman inspired a deflated Chelsea team in a crucial half-time team talk to win against Manchester City, according to Jose Mourinho.
"I didn't speak to the team - I am serious! It was Billy the masseur who spoke to them." he told Sky Sports.
"He was screaming so much in his Scottish accent, going grrr, grrr, grrr, that I didn't understand, but the players were clapping so they must have got it!
"The last time I spoke to them was at lunchtime. It was Billy's team talk, I'm telling you.
"Billy was fantastic, I didn't understand, but it looks like the players did."
Of course, Costa is never far from the headlines. In another instance of him being an absolute madman, the Atletico Madrid striker decided to get behind the wheel of a go-kart, earlier this week.
Of course it was never, ever going to end well for the former Chelsea man.
In footage posted on his Instagram, Costa promptly crashed the miniature vehicle and it ended up falling into a nearby swimming pool.
"We've got a big Spanish Super Cup semi-final against Barcelona tomorrow, be sure to rest up and don't do anything silly to get hurt"- ODDSbible (@ODDSbible) January 8, 2020
