Pele on Diego Costa's decision
The former Brazilian hero has spoken out about Diego Costa decision to play for Spain instead of Brazil.
Costa revealed last week that he would represent Spain and not Brazil and Pele has told of his feelings about the news.
"I think we have to respect the decision of Diego. He had a position and followed it. It was a beautiful attitude," reports GOAL.com.
"I understand he had to have courage to make the decision. He tried to explain that he had not been well received in the Brazilian national team and made the decision to represent Spain.
"I think that his attitude was correct. We have to respect it."
Many have spoken out about Costa’s decision, Luiz Scolari said: “He’s turning his back on something millions dream of doing”
