SAO PAULO (AP) — A Brazilian court is seeking the arrest of L.A. Galaxy striker Douglas Costa for failing to pay for child support.

An attorney for the Brazilian striker said on Tuesday in a statement that he trusts the decision by a judge in the city of Porto Alegre will be reversed.

Details of the case are sealed.

The 32-year-old Costa cannot be arrested outside Brazil, according to the court’s ruling, which was issued on Friday.

Costa has played for Brazil, Bayern Munich and Juventus. He signed a deal with the Major League Soccer team in February 2022, and it runs to December.
