Costa refuses to train

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa refused to train on Thursday after being told that his club are set to take an internal action against him following his eight match ban.

The 30-year-old is set to miss his club’s remaining matches this season after he abused referee Jesus Gil Manzano during their 2-0 defeat to Barcelona this month.

Reports state that the former Chelsea player was at the Spanish club’s training ground but was not involved with Thursday’s session.

It is believed that he is unhappy that the club have not defended his actions regarding the eight-game ban.

Spaniard Costa is no stranger to going on strike as he proved during his spell with Chelsea back in 2017.

The rebellious striker went missing and deleted his social media accounts after he was unable to secure a move away from Stamford Bridge.
