“When we go to the pitch, we want to win, that’s all we want to do. And when the game finishes, if you win, you go home happy,” Costa told the club’s official magazine.

“If I lose a game, it’s a different frame of mind when I finish the match. I go home and I feel upset. So you always have to know that you are going to leave everything on the pitch, every drop of sweat, to help the team win the game.
