Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been hit with an additional one match ban alongside a £20,000 fine following his conduct during the club’s FA Cup sixth round defeat against Everton.
The Spaniard, who was given his marching orders after receiving a second yellow card, refused to leave the pitch whilst angrily protesting to referee Michael Oliver.
Costa was then charged with improper conduct and will now miss the Blues’ Saturday trip to Villa park as well as their Swansea City match next week.
Read below, the English FA’s statement.
“Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct. The forward admitted a charge of improper conduct in relation to his behaviour after he was shown a second yellow card in The FA Cup Sixth Round tie on 12 March 2016 at Goodison Park.
