Diego Costa Driving A Rally Car Through A Dirt Track Proves He's The Craziest Footballer

Diego Costa's certainly enjoying himself back in Brazil as he lives life to the fullest.

The Atletico Madrid star has returned home following the end of the season and a video has circulated online of the Brazil-born striker recklessly driving a rally car through a dirt track.

No f*cks given!

Even his teammates think he's a mad man. Antoine Griezmann says he loves to "scrap" on the pitch.

"He creates a lot of space for me in between the opposition midfield and defence with his runs in behind, and I know he'll be there to latch on to my through balls," he said about Costa.

"We haven't had that much time together, but we're linking up well. He is like an animal on the pitch and he loves a scrap. The more he's scrapping, the better he plays."

Former Atletico Madrid striker Florent Sinama Pongolle has also recalled his time training alongside Costa.

"When I went to Sporting the club had no money and so brought back Diego Costa, who was on loan," he said.

"I trained with him and he's a madman, like what you see on TV. It's hilarious.

"Otherwise [away from football], he's a funny guy but on the field, he needs to be angry to be good."

Meanwhile, Costa could be on the move this summer. Atletico Madrid are reportedly weighing up an offer for Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani.

They've agreed to sign the Uruguayan forward if the 30-year-old leaves the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

The ex-Chelsea man was linked with a transfer to the Chinese Super League in January and those talks could soon return with the Spanish international out of favour under Diego Simeone.
