Netherlands winger Arjen Robben had words of encouragement for the former Shakhtar star. Robben has heaped praise on Costa in the wake of their 5-0 Bundesliga win over Hamburg last Friday. The Brazil international impressed on his league debut for the reigning champions as he scored once as well as setting up Thomas Müller’s strike.
Robben was impressed with the 24-year-old’s performance and has little doubt he will prove to be a fine addition for Bayern. He said: “He’s a talent. He can sidestep his opponents and is a special weapon for us.”
Costa was equally pleased with his display, and said: “I really liked it. It was a successful start and I’m very happy that I played my part in the victory. It doesn’t matter where I play. The main thing for us is to win as many games as possible.
