Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is aiming to emulate Franck Ribery during his time with the German champions.
“I am trying to do everything that Ribery did for Bayern because he is a guy I like so much,” Costa said to Omnisport.
“He is my friend, who gives me lots of advice. We talk a lot and I think the exchanges between us are very good.”
Costa is enjoying a Bundesliga title race that is seeing Bayern being pushed hard by promoted side RB Leipzig, who are just three points behind them at the top of the table.
His side are also turning their attention towards this month’s crucial Champions League last-16 tie against Arsenal.
