Grêmio fans react to the possible return of Douglas Costa
Currently at LA Galaxy, Douglas Costa’s name was speculated among Imortal fans. His last spell at the club was troubled and the player did not perform as expected. So, in a poll by journalist Diego Torbes on whether or not to approve the winger’s return, 65% were against it.
Last season, Douglas played in 29 matches, scoring four goals and providing one assist. Therefore, at the moment there is no possibility of the player returning to Imortal, it was just a way of measuring the rejection of Gremista fans.

The player debuted professionally for Tricolor in October 2008 and scored his first goal. With good performances, the athlete left Grêmio in 2010 and transferred to Shakhtar Donetsk. After that, Douglas had spells at Bayern Munich and Juventus. In 2021, the player returned to Imortal with a loan contract for one year and automatic renewal until the end of 2023. However, after poor performance and some controversies, the winger agreed to terminate the contract in January 2022.
