Diego Costa banned for eight matches for insulting referee’s mum

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa says goodbye to La Liga this season, the Spain international is banned for EIGHT matches for insulting referee’s mum.

The fiery frontman sits out four games due to his insults to the referee and a further four for grabbing his arm during a defeat to Barcelona.

Costa was shown a straight red card during Saturday’s loss at Barcelona by referee Gi Manzano, who stated in his post-match report that Costa insulted his mother, and that was the reason for the dismissal.

There are only seven matches left in the league in the 2018/19 season, so he would miss the rest of the campaign.
