WATCH: Diego Costa wakes brother with firework prank

There are few more eccentric characters in football than Diego Costa, who once again showed his wild side with a prank on his brother.

Costa hasn’t had a vintage year on the pitch so far, scoring just one La Liga goal in 11 appearances for Atletico Madrid, but that doesn’t seem to be affecting him off the pitch, as this latest video highlights.

With La Liga going on a winter break in the last few weeks, players based in Spain have been enjoying some time off – some more than others – with Costa showing that he is being productive in his rest period.

The 30-year-old shocked his brother with a prank that saw him wake him from his sleep by setting off fireworks within their hotel room. Watch below as the Spanish forward pulls off the cruel, yet hilarious prank.
