Diego Costa got a red card vs Barcelona because he said to referee Gil Manzano: “I s**t on your f***ing mother”.
The guy is absolutely nuts.
Atletico Madrid went to the Camp Nou looking to keep the LaLiga Santandertitle race alive.
Diego Costa left the pitch in the 29th minute, given a straight red by Gil Manzano for abusive language, and the Rojiblancos left the stadium after the game with nothing.
This isn’t the first time Atletico have finished a match at the Camp Nou with fewer players and Diego Simeone’s men left feeling aggrieved once again.
“Something always happens at the Camp Nou,” said Koke.
“They sent off [Fernando] Torres here, they sent off Torres… an icon,” said Simeone.
“From then on, anyone can get sent off for us.”
Seven Atletico players have been given their marching orders at the Camp Nou since 2013.
