Chelsea stars Ramires, Kenedy and the out-of-form Diego Costa now risk facing the irk of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho by partying into the early hours of Thursday morning at a London nightclub.
The Premier League trio were spotted leaving London’s top nightclub Libertine at 3.15am where super-middleweight champion James DeGale was also in attendance.
Diego Costa, who remained on the bench for the duration of Chelsea’s 0-0 draw against Tottenham last weekend, was escorted by two security guards as he left the venue in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The under fire striker, Costa, had to be driven home after his late night party.
Chelsea boss Mourinho however, may not be pleased to see Costa out until 3am after seeing his struggling striker throw a touchline tantrum last weekend.
Costa has been struggling with his form for quite some time now. The 27-year-old managed to score just three goals in The Premier League this season.
Mourinho’s golden rule for the first-team squad is that they are not allowed to drink alcohol or even have late nights out 48 hours before Chelsea games – a rule that the Blues trio were certainly testing by partying late into the night on Wednesday.
Recently, Costa was embroiled controversy when in the final moments of the London derby at White Hart Lane, Costa tossed his training bib over his shoulder in the direction of Mourinho.
The Portuguese manager laughed off the Spain striker’s ill-temper, and stated that he understands why he was upset at not being involved in the London derby.
On being asked about this, Mourinho said: “If he wants to hurt me, it’s not with a bib. I have a good relationship with him, no problems.”
“I think Diego is very privileged because he was the last one to be (put) on the bench.”
“Everybody was on the bench. I kept him in the team for all these matches and today we thought the best strategy to play was this one. We are happy with the decision.”
Chelsea youngster Kenedy and midfielder Ramires who joined Costa for the night out on Wednesday too had to be escorted by security guards.
British boxing star DeGale however looked slightly worse for wear with heavy puffed eyes as he left the venue after celebrating his unanimous points victory against Lucian Bute in his first defence of his IBF title.
DeGale won the fight on points against Bute with two judges scoring it 117-111 and the other 116-112 in Canada last Sunday.
