Costa expressed his excitement upon sealing the move to the reigning Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions. The Brazilian said, “Being part of a big and victorious club like Mamelodi Sundowns is truly wonderful. Not many people have the privilege of experiencing this and I feel extremely happy and grateful to be a part of such an incredible team.”
Costa’s football journey has taken him through various clubs, including Valenciennes FC in France Ligue 2, Royal Excelsior Virton, Sporting Charleroi, RWD Molenbeek and Royal Excel Mouscron (all Belgium).
Throughout this journey, Lucas Ribeiro has showcased his remarkable versatility, excelling on either wing or behind the striker. Like many other Brazilian attackers, he is renowned for his trickery in unlocking opposing defenses. When asked about his favorite football skill, he confidently stated, “I believe that I’m a player who often acts on instinct on the field. So at any moment, I might surprise people with my moves and skills. The surprise element of my game is what sets me apart and keeps the opposition guessing.”
