Diego Costa Named Premier League Player Of The Month For August by Dainnif(m): 11:12am On Sep 12, 2014
The Chelsea striker scored four times in his first
three matches in English football, while Swansea
boss Garry Monk has been named Manager of the
Month
Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been named the
Barclays' Premier League's Player of the Month for
August.
The Brazilian-born Spain striker lifts the award in his
first month in English football, having moved to
Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid this summer.
Costa, 25, scored four goals in three matches at the
start of the English campaign, including individual
strikes against Burnley and Leicester City, and a
brace against Everton in a 6-3 victory.
The striker was criticised by Everton boss Roberto
Martinez following the game at Goodison on August
30 for shouting at Seamus Coleman after the Irish
right-back had scored an own goal.
"I think there are certain foreign players who, when
they come to the Premier League, need to
understand the ethics and it's a completely different
culture," he said.
Nevertheless, he beat off competition from Chelsea
team-mate Cesc Fabregas, Swansea City paid Nathan
Dyer and Gylfi Sigurdsson and Aston Villa's Andreas
Weimann.
But Swansea were successful in the manager's
category, with Garry Monk named Manager of the
Month after guiding the Welsh side to three wins
from three.
The Swans kicked off their Premier League campaign
with a 2-1 win at Manchester United, before beating
Burnley 1-0 and West Brom 3-0 to climb to joint-top
of the table.
