Chelsea striker Diego Costa can’t stay out of the limelight. The hot-headed Brazilian-born player was again involved in an untoward incident in the FA Cup tie with MK Dons.
Just five minutes into the game, the 27-year old had his hand on the throat of an opponent player and as expected, his action attracted some severe criticism on Twitter.
irony of MK Dons fans booing Diego Costa, a man who renounced his original home because it was more lucrative to move somewhere else.

Diego Costa is a real sly player, hands round a guys throat on that corner. These MK Dons players should wind him up
