Bayern Munich forward, Douglas Costa believes he has proven to be a capable replacement for Franck Ribery at Bayern Munich since the beginning of the season.
Frenchman, Frank Ribery has been injured since March.
Brazilian forward Costa was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk for €30 million to increase coach Pep Guardiola’s options on the wings.
“Guardiola has trusted me from the beginning 100 per cent,” he told reporters. “I felt immediately at ease in the team. I think I have filled the gap that Ribery has left since his injury well.
“I have to use this opportunity. When I came to Bayern, everyone was talking about Arjen Robben and Ribery.
“I have given it my best.
“Guardiola is a coach who prefers attacking football and we do in the national team also we have a lot of possession, you can see it in our games, this fast paced play I think suits me.”
