Former Chelsea player and manager Ruud Gullit admits he would have liked to play alongside Diego Costa.

The Dutch legend was speaking as a pundit for the BBC when he touched on the Spanish striker who scored his eighth goal of the Premier League season in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Southampton.

“His work rate opens spaces for you,” Gullit said on Match of the Day 2.

“When you’re a striker, you know that if he goes right, you go left because all the attention goes to him.

He’s a handful and I’d like to play with a player like this.”

Since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid in 2014, Costa has scored 40 goals in 64 league appearances.
