Juventus fans have been reacting to Douglas Costa’s post on Twitter and have told him the side misses his contributions while he sits on the sidelines through injury.
Can Paulo Dybala win over Maurizio Sarri at Juventus this season?
— Douglas Costa (@douglascosta) October 1, 2019
The Brazil international picked up a “medium-grade muscle injury to the semimembranosus muscle of the right thigh” (club’s official website) in their draw against Fiorentina in Serie A last month and has been unable to make an appearance since.
Valued at £34.2m by TransferMarkt, Costa has been unable to play a role in either of Juventus’ two Champions League matches so far and fans appear to have been suggesting that he is being missed immensely.
Indeed, it is not hard to suggest that the 29-year-old is an extremely important member of the Old Lady’s team as he has played a major role for them since joining them at the Allianz Stadium – he has made 75 appearances in which he has netted seven goals and provided 18 assists (Transfermarkt).
Whilst posting a photo of Gonzalo Higuain, Sami Khedira and Federico Bernardeschi on Twitter seemingly celebrating their 3-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday night, many of the club’s faithful decided to tell the South American how missed he is.
Here are just some of their reactions…
