With Costa onboard, football looks like an action movie where he is at the same time actor, director, and producer. At 9 years of age, Costa was put in the 11 to 12-year-old team by his childhood coach Flavio Machado. In one match a defender deliberately crashed into him.

Costa kicked Liverpool legend, Steven Gerard once. One man threatened him if he ever goes after Liverpool Captain again.
