Diego Costa’s second stint in Spain is becoming increasingly strained as As report on Thursday that he refused to train with his teammates with an internal disciplinary investigation underway following his red card against Barcelona in LaLiga.

That red card cost Atlético the chance to gain ground on Barcelona in the league. They would eventually lose the game and all hope of a late LaLiga title challenge.

Rumours about Costa’s future at Atlético Madrid continue to appear in local media with his return to Madrid being a large disappointment for everyone involved. He has only scored four goals in all competitions and has missed significant time through injury and suspension.

The latest ban means he misses the rest of the season.
