Manuel Da Costa- Jan 2009 on loan from Fiorentina to Sampdoria. 20 minutes Feb 2009- 0 minutes in March 2009. Photos of Da Costa with Sampdoria jersey

Manuel Da Costa moved to Sampdoria in the January 2009 market. I missed the move. I remember him from the 2007 Under-21 championship. Wish I could see him play again with the national team. He's 22 now.

Unlike Antunes, a Portuguese defender at Lecce who hasn't played in the last 4 games, Da Costa has played in 1 game in the second-half as a substitute. His competition is the starting lineup central defender pair: Lucchini and Accardi.

Da Costa stayed on the bench for:
the last Sampdoria game, March 15, 2009, draw SAMPDORIA 2-2 ROMA
SAMPDORIA 2-1 AC Milan, March 1, 2009

He played in SAMPDORIA 1-0 ATALANTA, Feb 22, 2009. He replaced central defender Accardi in the 24th minute of the second-half.

He's one of the 5 defenders in the Sampdoria team.

16 CAMPAGNARO Hugo Armando 27.06.1980
77 DA COSTA Manuel 06.05.1986
29 FERRI Michele 29.05.1981
28 GASTALDELLO Daniele 25.06.1983
6 LUCCHINI Stefano 02.10.1980
84 RAGGI Andrea

Here's how he looks like playing with Sampdoria:

Da Costa wears #77. The same number that Ricardo Quaresma has at Inter. Now I need to see "La Giostra Dei Gol" on RaiItaliatv this weekend to see Da Costa play with Sampdoria.
