"The fucking mother who bore you." That phrase earned Diego Costa the red card expulsion. He faced Gil Manzano after he was fouled by a collision with Arthur. It was the 28th minute when Diego Costa Atlético was left with one less. The words of the Spanish international could be read on the lips of the referee.
The rojiblancos players surrounded the referee to protest. Gimenez won a yellow and Gerard Piqué, Costa's partner in the national team for years, wanted to calm him on his way to the locker room.
