Costa told ESPN Brazil: “I’ll be honest, I am targeted here, by the referees, the people. If I do something, it’s totally different than if any other players do.

“It needs to be seen, that people targeted me.

“It’s something I have to deal with and I ask god that these things don’t disturb me and don’t take the sequence of the games from me, which happens sometimes and gives me suspensions.

“I am aware of [the new dissent law] now. The second time I went to talk to the referee, he showed me the yellow card. I even found it a bit weird, but then I understood. I went to apologise at half-time and that’s it.”
