Atletico Madrid Officially Present Diego Costa

Posted by atleti on July 10, 2007


18-year old Brasilian striker joins los colchoneros after a loan stint at Sporting Braga. He’s striker who can play at both wings, offering manager Javier Aguirre a new attacking option during the season. He’s currently recovering from an operation, but should be back to good form by the start of the season.

I look forward to seeing him play in 07/08, although there is some doubt that he will play for the club this season.

During his unveiling, Technical Director Jesus Garcia Pitarch said is it possible that:

…he’ll have to play on loan and there are many Portuguese and Spanish clubs who are interested in him. Anyway, the most important thing is that he recovers well from the operation that we underwent and that’s what he’s working on.

Reasoning? He occupies a non-European spot.
