Former striker of Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, Diego Costa, is the new football player of Atletico Mineira, the Brazilian club announced.
The naturalized Spaniard returned to the country where he was born after 15 years, and signed a one-year contract.
Once one of the best goal scorers in the world, he is 32 years old, he played two games for Brazil, and 24 games for Spain and scored 10 goals.
He was without a club for more than half a year, since he terminated his contract with Madrid at the end of 2020. He definitely left the deepest trace there when it comes to performances on the Old Continent.
During the previous seven months, a large number of clubs wanted to bring him into their ranks, despite his epithet “naughty”, and among other things, there was the Bologna team, led by Siniša Mihajlović. However, Diego decided on a new adventure and returned to the country where he was born 33 years ago.
