    Early career

    Costa signed for his first European club in February 2006, Portugal’s Braga. He initially struggled with loneliness and the comparatively cold weather of northern Portugal. Out of action due to the club’s lack of a youth team, he was loaned that summer to Penafiel in the second division,managed by former Portugal international Rui Bento, who desired the “rough diamond”. Through his negotiations with Spain’s Atlético Madrid, Mendes arranged Costa’s transfer for €1.5 million and 50% of the play...

    Celta Vigo

    Later that month, Costa and Mario Suárez were loaned to Segunda División side Celta de Vigo for the season, and Costa became a regular in the team, managed by former Ballon d’Or winner Hristo Stoichkov. In his seventh league match, he scored his first goal in Spanish football in a dominant home victory over Xerez; after scoring, he showboated, causing a brawl which resulted in him being sent off. Costa was subsequently rested from Celta’s away game at the same opposition. The event drew the w...

    Albacete

    Despite earning a poor reputation for his conduct, Costa attracted interest from Salamanca, Gimnàstic de Tarragona and Málaga after his loan at Celta; García Pitarch ruled out any approach from the latter, fearing how Costa would behave on the Costa del Sol. After attending Atlético’s pre-season tour of Mexico, he signed on loan for Albacete, also of Segunda División, on 22 August 2008, signing a contract which would have a lower fee depending on how many games he played. He initially threate...

    Brazil

    Request to change teams

    In September 2013, the Royal Spanish Football Federation made an official request to FIFA for permission to call up Costa for the Spain national team. He had been granted Spanish nationality in July.FIFA regulations currently permit players with more than one nationality to represent a second country if, like Costa, he had only represented his first country in friendly matches. On 29 October 2013, Costa declared that he wished to play international football for Spain, sending a letter to the...

    Spain

    On 28 February 2014, Spain manager Vicente del Bosque included Costa in the squad for a friendly against Italy.He finally made his debut on 5 March, playing the full 90 minutes at his club ground, the Vicente Calderón Stadium, as the hosts won 1–0. Costa was named in Spain’s 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup, as well as the final list which was named on 31 May. He returned from the injury which had ended his club season by starting in a warm-up game against El Salvador, winning...

    Style of play and reception

    Friends and family recalled how Costa’s style of play changed little over time, with his father stating how as a child, Costa would be furious whenever his team lost. Atlético scout Javier Hernández, on watching 17-year-old Costa play for Penafiel, was impressed by the young forward’s determination and power, although found it evident that he was not observing a healthy lifestyle. Costa’s Penafiel manager Rui Bento, who was at Sporting CP when Cristiano Ronaldo broke into the team, rated Cost...

    Discipline and controversies

    Costa has been the source of much controversy in his career due to confrontations with opponents, and has received multiple violent conduct charges from The Football Association of England. Opposing managers have also opined that Costa himself intends to provoke his opponents. Danny Murphy of Match of the Day has stated that Costa is targeted by players who “wind him up,” but he “remains calm”, and is justified to taunt opponents who taunt him. Pat Nevin, a former Chelsea winger, believes tha...
