Liverpool fans get ahead of themselves over Douglas Costa ‘hint’

Liverpool supporters got very excited when Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa ‘liked’ a tweet that suggested he should join the Merseyside outfit.

The tweet in question listed Costa among an attacking force of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, adding that the quartet would be the ‘best attack’ in Europe next season.

The fact that Costa ‘liked’ it has put plenty of Liverpool fans into a frenzy, with many now hoping that the Brazilian wants to leave the Bundesliga giants for Anfield.

Earlier this week, a report in Bild claimed that Jurgen Klopp is eyeing a potential £26m swoop for the winger, and his Twitter activity has only fuelled the rumours.

Costa has scored seven goals in 32 appearances for Bayern this season, but he has only started 13 league matches under Carlo Ancelotti and just four in the Champions League.

Of course, there is no concrete evidence that the Bundesliga winner will move his career to Merseyside, but that has not stopped Liverpool supporters from dreaming.

Others, though, kept their feet firmly on the ground.
