Douglas Costa: ‘Ronaldo better than Lewandowski’

Juventus loanee Douglas Costa says he ‘wanted to return to Bayern Munich’ and insists Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘on another level’ compared to Robert Lewandowski.

"I wanted to go back to Bayern Munich a long time ago, I’m very happy here,” Douglas Costa told Sport Bild.

The Brazilian made return to the Allianz Arena on loan from Juventus last summer.

“I have always been in contact with my former teammates: Manuel Neuer, Jérôme Boateng, Thomas Müller, Joshua Kimmich, I never lost contact with them,” he said.

"I had other offers before I joined Juventus. It is top club, one of the best in Europe. I wanted to win the Champions League with Juve.

"I had the luck and the privilege of playing with great champions: Neymar in the National team, Ronaldo at Juventus.

“Now I play with Robert [Lewandowski]. the best in Europe. If you only look at the numbers, though, Cristiano seems to be at a higher level.”
