diego costa
about me
  • The ball is an allied, thus he fondles it, treats it well and never otherwise. This is so much true that, if it could talk, it would probably complained when, with 15 years old and already so talented, he wanted to shoot it into the air and quit football to start working at his uncle’s store of electronic appliances in S. Paulo, Brazil. And was this uncle – also a talented player in the past – who discourage him from doing such stupid thing. Much to our delight he decided not to quit. He left behind memories of playing football in Sergipe’s streets, northeast of Brazil, with his bare feet; he left behind his passion for flying kites. He moved to S. Paulo’s Barcelona, and from there to Portugal was one small step forward, where he arrived with only 16 years showing that not only he was a promising athlete but also a potential star in the world of football.

  • Diego Costa (07-OCT- 1988) leaves his mark wherever he goes, whether in Portugal, England or Spain, because his own distinctive style is pretty much there for a very long time. Diego is what you see. His football shows his personality, exhilarating everyone with his joy, energy, character, determination, stamina and speed along with an unusual capacity to take-off for someone with such strong physical appearance – and because all that he made his way to Spain’s national team when he got dual citizenship. He is fearless. What he really likes is having the ball in his feet and score goals – which is, after all, the essence of football.
