Diego Costa was a bit like marmite. You either loved him (like we did) or you absolutely hated him (like fans of all the other clubs did).
Well, Chelsea fans adored the Brazilian-born Spain striker, as he led the club to two Premier League titles in just three years.
After the Bleacher Report’s Twitter account tweeted out reminding fans of the five years since Costa signed for the club, Chelsea fans were sent into a reminiscing mood of the Brazil-born Spaniard.

Despite Costa’s successful spell at Stamford Bridge, he endured an acrimonious departure, after reportedly being told by former boss Antonio Conte he could leave the club by text.
Here is a selection of tweets from fans reminiscing over Costa’s time at the club:
Best striker after Drogba
