Diego Costa Banned For Eight Games For Abusing Referee’s Mother

The former Chelsea player, 30, was sent off by official Jesus Gil Manzano during Atletico’s 2-0 loss to Barcelona in La Liga.


Manzano said in his match report that the Spanish international had “insulted his mother”, by saying loudly: "I shit on your whore mother, I shit on your whore mother!", a claim Costa denied.

The Spanish Football Federation’s ban rules him out of Atletico’s remaining La Liga fixtures this season.

Costa, who can appeal against the ban, received a four game suspension for insults to the referee and a further four for grabbing the official’s arm.

“I asked the referee and he told me Costa said something to him,” Atletico manager Diego Simeone said after the game.
