Best of Frenemies! Sergio Ramos & Diego Costa have some jocular banter during Spain team photo [Video]
So much for the worries about Diego Costa’s effect on Spain’s team spirit!
With the boisterous Brazilian striker becoming a naturalised Spanish international earlier this year, there were genuine concerns that Costa’s presence could irk some of Real Madrid’s La Roja representatives, notably Sergio Ramos, with whom he’s had some feisty battles for Atletico Madrid.
Such concerns were unfounded: Ramos had already said that he considers Costa ‘a brother’ now that they’re international teammates; they’re in the same boat and club matters have to be put to one side.
During La Roja’s official team photo last Monday, the proof of the good vibes between the pair was there for all to see, as they shared some jocular banter, Ramos giving Costa a friendly punch on the shoulder.
Just imagine he’d done the same during a Real-Atletico game…
