The FA have imposed yet another ban on notorious Chelsea striker Diego Costa and as expected Chelsea fans are not one bit happy about it.
The forward had previously admitted a charge of improper conduct during the FA Cup defeat to Everton and was already serving a two-match suspension. Following the latest ruling, an additional suspension of one game and a fine of £20,000 have been imposed on the Spain international.
The FA statement read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday (31 March 2016), Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct.”
Chelsea fans are not at all pleased with the decision:
Well. I think that’s it for Costa in England. The FA whacks him again. I think he’s fed up with the league and those running it. He’s going.

The FA can piss off. Extra match ban on Diego Costa, and a fine??? For what???

Diego Costa banned an extra game? Don’t the FA owe us a game from when Ashley Barnes nearly snapped Matic’s leg?
Can’t we cash that in?

It took The FA the whole of the international break and day before a game to come to the decision Costa would be further banned-Righto….

A Leeds striker has been banned for 8 matches for a biting incident? Didn’t even hear about it, probably because his name isn’t Diego Costa.
