Additional ban for Costa


Diego Costa has been handed an additional one-match ban, fined £20,000 and warned over his future conduct after admitting a charge of improper conduct.

Costa was charged after he was sent off for the first time in his Chelsea career during the FA Cup quarter-final loss to Everton.

He received an automatic two-match ban for his dismissal but that has been increased to three matches after admitting a charge of improper conduct.

"Following an independent regulatory commission hearing on Thursday (March 31, 2016), Chelsea's Diego Costa has been given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct," a statement read.

"The forward admitted a charge of improper conduct in relation to his behaviour after he was shown a second yellow card in the FA Cup sixth-round tie on March 12, 2016 at Goodison Park.

"This suspension will follow immediately on the conclusion of the player's current ban."

Costa will miss Saturday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa as well as the match at Swansea on Saturday week.
