Chelsea ace Eden Hazard admits he’d like to welcome Diego Costa back into the first team.

Costa is still AWOL in Brazil and is refusing to return to training despite a move to Atletico Madrid falling through last week.

Hazard said: “Diego? We spend three years together and we won everything, not the Champions League but we won the League. It was a pleasure to play with him.

“I want him back but you know I don’t make the decision. But he is a top guy, a top player.

“I hope for him in the future he can find a solution and I want to see him on the pitch soon.”
