For Botafogo, the veteran had a limited number of minutes but scored three goals. And it will be interesting to see how he adapts with a full preseason behind him now that he has chosen to sign for Gremio.

Costa’s playing style was characterized by his sheer power and aggression, making him a nightmare for opposing defenders. He excelled in holding up play, using his strength to shield the ball and bring teammates into the attack. His ability to bully defenders and create space for himself in the penalty area made him a constant threat inside the box.

One of Diego Costa’s most notable attributes was his clinical finishing ability. Equally adept with both feet and his head, he had a knack for being in the right place at the right time to capitalize on scoring opportunities. His predatory instincts and ruthless demeanor made him a nightmare for opposing goalkeepers, earning him a reputation as one of the Premier League’s most feared strikers.

During his time at Chelsea, Costa amassed impressive statistics, contributing significantly to the team’s success. In his debut season, he scored 20 goals in the Premier League, playing a pivotal role in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign under Jose Mourinho. Over his three seasons with the club, Costa racked up a total of 52 goals in 89 league appearances, solidifying his status as one of Chelsea’s most prolific forwards of the modern era.
