Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa handed eight match ban for insulting referee’s mother

Spanish striker, Diego Costa has been given an eight-game ban for his controversial rant at referee Jesus Gil Manzano during Atletico Madrid‘s 2-0 defeat by Barcelona last Saturday.

The 30-year-old was shown a straight red card in the 28th minutes after he repeatedly said to the referee “Me cago en tu puta madre,” which literally translates to “I shit on your whore mother.”

The referee’s report also accuses Costa of holding the referee’s arm so as to prevent him taking out more cards for his team-mates.
