CHELSEA icon Diego Costa has revealed he would jokingly hug the ‘shy’ N’Golo Kante NAKED as the French star wouldn’t take off his underwear in the shower.
The duo spent a season and a half together at Stamford Bridge following Kante’s arrival from Leicester City in 2016.
Costa then returned to Atletico Madrid in January 2018, ending their time together in west London.
The couple have two opposite personalities, but seem to have hit it off.
And Costa, who is currently a free agent after a stint with Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, has opened up about his relationship with the lovable midfielder.
The fiery forward used to go into team showers naked, trying to embrace the “shy” edge.
Speaking to Canal Pilhado, Costa said: “At Chelsea, I would try to jokingly hug Kante. He’s really shy.
“I’d get in the bath all naked and say, ‘Kante, give me a hug!’ and he’d be all ‘No, no, Diego’.
“He doesn’t even take off his underwear to take a shower.”
Costa scored a remarkable 52 goals in 89 Premier League games for Chelsea.

Despite this, the Spaniard left Chelsea with two Prem winners’ medals.
