Chelsea fans, good morning!
There are few things in life more difficult to tackle than a Monday at the beginning of a long working week, but you can take comfort in the fact that there’s plenty of interesting football news doing the rounds.
It’s our job to siphon through that news and put it all in one easy-on-the-eye round-up. Read on below for all the latest.
Costa's issues not new
Chelsea fans are well accustomed to Diego Costa’s disciplinary issues, but it would appear that his problems aren’t limited to the confines of Stamford Bridge.
The Spain international’s brother has confirmed that Costa has always struggled to control his temper, recalling how the striker has been involved in plenty of football fights.
He described the current situation as ‘nothing new’, with Costa currently serving a three-game ban for his antics during Chelsea’s win over Arsenal.
"This isn't something new. It's the same old story," Jair Costa said.
"It's hard for Diego to change a habit of a lifetime. He always loses his temper easily and ends up in fights when he plays football.
"As brothers we've always been close but always fought over football because we were so passionate about trying to be better than the other.
"He never wants to be beaten and as a child if his team lost or he disagreed with a foul, he would fly into a rage ending up in scraps with his opponent."
Hazard the Galactico?
Meanwhile in transfer news Real Madrid are keeping an eye on Eden Hazard with a view to making him their next Galactico.
That’s according to information from the Sunday Times at the weekend, with it said Florentino Perez is intrigued by the Belgian.
We don’t want to say it won’t happen, especially considering Real’s record in relation to such matters, but Chelsea certainly won’t let him go without a fight.
Terry's disabled parking woe
Last but not least, John Terry has found himself in the media spotlight after being spotted parking his car in a disabled bay outside a kebab shop in Surrey.
To cap off a truly disastrous move for the former England captain, he was ostracised on Twitter by football fans. Supporters might recall the fact that Terry was fined £60 back in 2008 for doing the exact same thing. Tut tut.
