Diego Costa has made a living by getting away from Premier League defenders and banging in goals for Chelsea, but the Spain International may have managed his best trick yet in getting away with a foul mouthed tirade.
Evidently displeased with referee Anthony Taylor during the 2-1 victory over Stoke City yesterday, Costa vented his feelings with a choice four-letter expletive that would definitely have merited some immediate disciplinary action and perhaps even some post-match charges. The referee, quite incredibly, chose to let the moment go despite practically getting sworn at to his face.
Costa is known for his fiery temperament, and this was definitely not one of his better moments – he could pick up something from Taylor’s professionalism.
