Diego Costa gets 8-Game Ban for Insulting Referee's Mother

The Spain international, who rejoined the Madrid club from Chelsea in 2018 — four years after leaving Diego Simeone’s side for Stamford Bridge — insulted the official’s mother, according to Manzano’s match report from the La Liga fixture on April 6.

His post-match report stated: “In the 28th minute, number 19 … Diego Costa was sent off for the following reason: saying to me loudly, in the following terms: ‘I s**t on your w**** mother, I s**t on your w**** mother!'”

The suspension, which has been handed down by the Spanish Football Federation on Thursday, rules the 30-year-old Costa out of Atletico’s remaining domestic league games this season. He will also miss one game next season.
