Diego Costa will always be remembered in England as a fantastic footballer… but also as a person who enjoyed a wind-up and sometimes (or maybe a lot of the time) failed to control his temper.

The Brazilian-born striker returned to his beloved Atletico Madrid in January after being banished by Antonio Conte.

He quickly returned to his entertaining ways with a goal and a sending off on his second debut for the La Liga side.

However, the 29-year-old showed us he still has a soft side when he posted some brilliant photos of him and his dogs enjoying a day off in the snow.

A photo-shoot in the snow with his dogs… how cute!

This Twitter user made a hilarious comparison between the Atleti forward and Manchester United’s new signing…

We hope to see Atletico Madrid fans reveal a banner for Diego’s dogs in the near future!
