Tuesday was the day when Arsenal’s quarterback Gabriel had his suspension canceled for the red card that was given the moment when he had an open conflict on the field with Diego Costa. The Chelsea’s player was punished by the Football Association based on the video recordings.
Diego Costa received a 3 match suspension, just like Gabriel did, who responded right away to what Costa did to Koscielny.
Diego Costa arousal on Koscielny was included automatically in the „violent behavior” category by those who judge the incidents on the Saturday’s game. Events that were missed out by the head referee.
Here are the matches that Diego Costa will miss due to this suspension:
Walsall Chelsea – England’s Cup (23 September 2015)
Newcastle – Chelsea – Championship (26 September 2015)
Chelsea – Southampton – Championship (3 October 2015)
It’s a real shame to see this kind of behaviour on the field, but thankfully thanks to these drastic decisions, it will probably keep other players from behaving like that in the future.
