FA have charged Chelsea striker Diego Costa with improper conduct following his misbehaviour in the FA Cup defeat to Everton. The Brazilian-born striker was sent off late in the game after receiving a second yellow for his clashing of heads with Gareth Barry.
He appeared to bite Barry during the altercation and flashed a V sign to the Toffees fans while marching off the pitch.
However, Barry has since then made it clear that Costa didn’t bite him on the neck, but the FA has decided to charge him with improper conduct, which might result in a three-game ban for the 27-year-old.
Some Chelsea fans are not at all happy with the decision.
Diego Costa being chased out by FA just like they chased Suarez.
Hazard being chased by media just like they did Bale.
