Diego Costa gets red card

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa will miss the rest of the season after being handed an eight-match suspension by the Spanish Football Federation on Thursday, AFP has reported.

Costa was sent off in the first half of Atletico’s 2-0 defeat to Barcelona on Saturday for directing a crude insult towards referee Gil Manzano.

Manzano also reported that Costa had “grabbed” him by the arms during the incident.
