Douglas Costa has been working on a hidden talent in his time away from his Bayern Munich matches: the joy of internet trolling.
The winger had noticed that Bayern's official Facebook page were handing out a matchday jersey which had been worn and signed by their legendary defender, Mats Hummels.

The post stated that anybody would have a chance of laying their hands on the shirt if they commented with the hashtag #MiaSanMia, so Costa clearly decided to share some fun with the fans by putting himself into the running.
You wonder if the terms and conditions linked at the start of the post included the rule 'no actual Bayern Munich player will be allowed to win the shirt'.
Spirits are less high at the Allianz Arena than they were before Munich's loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, but fans will find relief in Costa's cheeky social media banter.
The match that Hummels's jersey is being advertised for, and Costa will likely feature in as well, is a Champions League clash against FC Rostov of Russia.
Munich are already through to the knockout stages after four games, but will hope to overtake Atletico Madrid at the top of the group by beating Rostov and the Spanish club themselves in their final group games.
