Costa gets horse placenta for Champions League race
Atletico Madrid sent star striker Diego Costa to Serbia for special horse placenta treatment in a bid to get him ready for Saturday's Champions League final, media reports said.
Costa, who will also be a key player in Spain's World Cup squad, is a major doubt for the Lisbon final against Real Madrid because of a right hamstring injury.
Manager Diego Simeone said he will give Costa every chance to be ready for the match. And Atletico sent him on a private plane to Belgrade for treatment by Marijana Kovacevic, AS newspaper and other media reported.
Kovacevic will be helping Ghana at the World Cup in Brazil.
The Brazilian-born Costa, 25, was injured in Atletico's match against Barcelona last Saturday in which they secured the Spanish title.
