Costa given Juve warning?

Juventus have reportedly warned Douglas Costa about his future conduct after the winger went to Neymar’s birthday party hours after a car accident.

Costa wrote off his Jeep on the A4 motorway between Turin and Trieste on Monday morning yet was present at Neymar’s 27th birthday bash in Paris the same evening.

Although Juve players had two days off, Gazzetta dello Sport and’s Romeo Agresti write the Brazilian’s conduct did not please the club, who preferred to see ‘more responsible behaviour’ from the player.

Nonetheless, the 28-year-old would have avoided a fine and been given only ‘a light talking-to’ ahead of the Bianconeri’s push for a Serie A and Champions League double.

Costa did not train on Tuesday after he sustained a hamstring injury against Parma last weekend.
