Video: Douglas Costa disgrace as Juventus star elbows, head-butts and spits into furious opponent’s mouth

Douglas Costa was the topic of conversation in his side’s 2-1 victory against Sassuolo this afternoon. The winger managed to overshadow Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his first goals for the club with a horrendous display of behaviour.

Costa was engaging in a heated argument with Sassuolo’s Federico di Francesco and was sent off thanks to a VAR review.
