costa and john terry

Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa has paid a cheeky tribute to Chelsea legend John Terry in an Instagram post he made after the Englishman announced his retirement.

John Terry had a massive career at Chelsea during which he earned 78 England caps, five Premier League titles, three League Cups and five FA Cups.

He also won the UEFA Champions League title with Chelsea alongside a Europa League medal despite not playing in the finals for the Blues.

John Terry made a total of 717 appearances for the Blues and scored 67 goals in his career at Stamford Bridge. He left the Blues for Aston Villa in 2017 and played 36 games for the Championship club.

It can be recalled that Terry won his last Premier League title playing alongside Diego Costa, who left for Atletico Madrid after a sour relationship with Antonio Conte.

Regardless, the Spain striker still communicates with his former Chelsea teammates.

The Spaniard who struggled with understanding English in his time at Chelsea congratulated Terry in a cheeky message:
