It is all too easy to forget these days that many of today’s high-profile footballers are children.
Over in Brazil last weekend, Gremio took on Internacional in domestic action, and the match witnessed a bizarre act of child’s play from sought-after teenager Douglas Costa. Costa, 19-years-old, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United after being dubbed “the new Ronaldinho.”
The incident came about in the 19th minute of the match after Douglas Costa was fouled by Pablo Guinazu in the centre of the pitch. Costa was quick to get back on his feet, before the forward made his way over to the Argentine defender. And, as he passed him, Costa stuck his tongue out in Guinazu’s face in a classic immature insult.
