Lopetegui Warns Diego Costa To Get Fit Or Risk His World Cup Place

While his relationship with his Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is still on the ropes, Julen Lopetegui is now worried that his main striker won’t be fit for the upcoming tournament.

As reported by Radio MARCA, the coaching staff of La Roja already informed Costa that in order to be included in the call-ups for the World Cup in Russia, he needs to rack up more playing time.

The 28-year-old striker, who wasn’t registered in the Blues’ list for the Champions League, has gone the whole summer without attending his club’s training sessions.

On the other hand, a potential move back to Atletico Madrid in January might increase the player’s chances to regain his spot in Lopetegui’s starting lineup in the months before the World Cup.
