Bayern boss insults Douglas Costa

Uli Hoeness has taken a swipe at the departed Douglas Costa, questioning the character of the Brazilian and describing him as “a mercenary”.

Costa arrived at the Allianz Arena from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2015 for €30million, signing a five-year contract.

With his first-team opportunities reduced under Carlo Ancelotti, the winger was sent on loan to Juventus, who have the option to make the switch permanent at the end of this season for €40m.

And Hoeness was not sorry to see Costa go, claiming the Brazilian was not popular among the club’s hierarchy.

“Costa didn’t work out because he was quite a mercenary whose character we didn’t like”, Hoeness told Frankenpost.
