Fikayo Tomori: " I accidentally broke Diego Costa's nose"
Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has recalled accidentally breaking Diego Costa’s nose in a training session.
The young centre-back – then a teenager – had been invited to join in with the first-team’s training session by then-interim manager Guus Hiddink and ended up inadvertently injuring the club’s star striker when contesting a header.
However, Costa managed to get a protective mask fitted and was able to face Newcastle United in the Blues’ next game, scoring in a 5-1 victory.
“I was actually still in school and I didn’t know I had done it in training,” Tomori said.
“It was an accident, we both went up for a header and I had to flick the ball backwards and he tried to score. He headed the back of my head and he broke his nose. I didn’t know I had done it until the next day when it was all over the papers.
“I was getting a lot of messages with people thinking I had meant to do it! It was mostly light-hearted, a lot of banter. I got back to school and people were asking about it. I was in year 10 or 11 and my mates had all seen it.
“It was all right. He didn’t kick me in training after that.”
