It wasn’t long ago that Diego Simeone and Diego Costa were causing headaches for opposing teams up and down Spain and Europe when Costa was at Atletico.

The pair caught up against last night as Costa puts it, for a, “great reconnection and great memories”.

Diego Simeone was named Manager of the Year last night at Marca’s annual event and Costa may have been in the city to celebrate with his former manager as he gets ready to play for Spain during the international break.
