Valencia acquire Vietto on loan from Atletico

Valencia acquire Vietto on loan from Atletico

Despite the injury scare, Costa revelled in his return, saying: "I'm very happy to have played for Atletico Madrid again".

Costa, 29, helped Atletico win the 2013 Copa del Rey and the 2014 Spanish league title, as well as reach the Champions League final, before moving to Chelsea where he played for three seasons. It was very important for me.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone finally has his favorite striker back at the club.

Atleti were already 2-0 up - thanks to goals from Diego Godin and Fernando Torres - when Costa entered the fray for Angel Correa in the 64th minute. They are two players with status, and I hope they can reach their best form as soon as possible.

The Brazilian-born hitman looked to have injured himself in scoring the goal, but managed to finish the game. He brings speed, strength and physicality, which is what we expected of him.

And while the deal was agreed in September, he could not be registered as a player for the La Liga outfit until January, when the club's transfer window ban came to an end.

Simeone, however, is unhappy the 24-year-old has not been able to make the impact befitting his level of ability, with Vietto yet to score this term. After being told last June by Blues manager Antonio Conte he wasn't part of the club's plans going forward, Costa seems like he's firmly part of Atleti's plans.

Atletico Madrid is now second in La Liga but nine points behind Barcelona, and the club has scored just 25 goals in its league campaign, which ranks just 39th across Europe's big five leagues.
