Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis do the macarena in Chelsea initiation - video
Blues trio carry out dreaded initiation to the joy of their teammates
Thursday 31 July 2014
Chelsea new boys Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis may have arrived at Stamford Bridge with big reputations but that wasn't enough to get them out of the customary initiation.
The Blues stars all joined this summer from La Liga for a combined fee in the region of £70m and have made a firm impression on the club's pre-season tour of Slovenia.
Such rituals are known to take place at Premier League clubs in an effort to break the ice and Jose Mourinho's squad were treated to a stellar performance of the macarena yesterday morning.
While Costa and Fabregas, Spain teammates, are seen dancing to the famous tune, Luis goes one step further and climbs on a chair.

The bonding must have worked a treat as Mourinho's side strolled to a 3-1 pre-season win over Vitesse Arnhem on Wednesday night.
Strikes from Mohamed Salah and Nemanja Matic were complimented by a fabulous free-kick from Fabregas as Costa delivered a star turn to inspire his new side to victory.
Mourinho's boys start their Premier League campaign away against Burnley before their first home game against Leicester City on 23rd August.
