One thing I learned over the years as a dog owner is that sometimes the best toys are the cheapest, most mundane things. Buy all the squeakers and ropes and balls you want — and make no mistake, there’s a massive industry out there producing these by the boatload — often, it’s the simplest thing that brings the most joy. Both my dogs particularly like cardboard boxes. The little one especially likes to shake and shred them, while the older one is a bit calmer if no less determined in his approach.
It would appear that Diego Costa is just as easily amused, though in true Diego Costa style, he’s trolling teammates with the random box that somehow ended up on the training ground today.
There’s more video on Chelsea TV and I’m sure it will show up in tomorrow’s Chelsea Unseen as well. Clearly Diego Costa is very unhappy. Or he just wants to ship Hazard off to Real Madrid. Or both! Palpable discardboard box.
