FilGoal | News | Costa: I was terrified of wolves in an intro video with Wolverhampton

Diego Costa revealed the scenes of a video of his presentation as a new player at Wolverhampton, where he appeared with 3 wolves.

Wolverhampton announced the signing of the former Spanish international striker on a contract until the end of the current season.

“I was scared to death, I kept thinking while holding these chains: What if the wolf thought of jumping on me?” Costa said on the official website of his new club.

He added, “The coach kept calling them and asking them to move, and they did not respond to her, and then I thought: If they do not implement the coach’s instructions, what will they do with me?”

And he continued, “Then the wolves came and started smelling my feet, and at that time I thought I was inevitably doomed.”

He continued, “I was afraid, because they are wolves and not dogs. It was a nice but uncomfortable experience, I have 5 dogs, but not wolves.”

Wolverhampton used an innovative method to present its new player, taking advantage of the nickname Wolves for which he is famous.

Costa entered the video, catching 3 wolves in an unusual clip.

Wolverhampton had to sign Costa after their Austrian striker Sasha Kalaidzic ruptured his cruciate ligament.

Kalaydzic joined Wolverhampton on the last day of the summer transfer market, and was injured after just 45 minutes with the team against Southampton.

Mexican Raul Jimenez is also away, as he has been suffering from muscle problems since the preparation period.

Thus, the Wolverhampton administration resorted to Costa, who has previous experience in the English Premier League in a Chelsea shirt.

Costa, 33, has not been associated with any club since his departure from Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro last January.

Costa starred at Chelsea after joining him in the summer of 2014 from Atletico Madrid for 38 million euros.

Costa scored 59 goals in 120 games with Chelsea and assisted 23, and led him to crown the English Premier League 2015 and 2017.

Costa’s golden period with Atletico Madrid is between 2010 and 2014, then he played for him again between January 2018 and January 2021.

Costa scored a total of 83 goals in 216 games, assisted 38 goals, and won the league with Rojiblancos in 2014 after an absence of 18 years.
