Liverpool fans have hailed Diego Costa a "hero" after Atletico Madrid’s Super Cup win over Real Madrid.
But their praise wasn’t for the Spain striker’s two goals in his side’s 4-2 victory.
They were more interested in what he did to Real captain Sergio Ramos.
It’s fair to say Reds supporters haven’t forgiven Ramos for injuring Mo Salah in the Champions League final back in May.
The 32-year-old was accused of giving Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius a concussion in the same fixture.
So when Costa’s boot made contact with Ramos’ head in the 64th minute of Wednesday’s match, a good number of the Anfield faithful quite enjoyed it.
The collision happened after Ramos made a sliding challenge on the former Chelsea man, whose momentum carried him over his opponent’s head.
In the moments following, Costa appeared to direct a few choice words in Ramos’ direction as he lay on the ground holding his head.
The pair, after a talking to from the referee, shook hands and got on with the game.
Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted :
Costa opened the scoring in the Super Cup, later notching his second to send the match to extra-time after a Karim Benzema strike and Ramos penalty had put Real ahead.
Goals from Saul Niguez and Koke clinched the win for Ateltico.
During the match, Costa and Ramos – two players renowned for being aggressive and occasionally hot-headed – fought a running battle.
But afterwards, Costa insisted there was no bad blood between him and Ramos.
He said: "Everybody knows I admire Ramos, he is a really great player.
"He has shown year after year how good he is. We have a big friendship even though you could not see it today.
"He helped me a lot in the beginning when I was in the national team. So I respect him, but we both know on the pitch we must fight for our team.
"He’s a strong as player, always looking for the win, as do I. Whatever happens on the pitch, after the final whistle we shake hands and that’s the end of the story."
