Costa will NOT face FA action over Kompany kick during Chelsea’s win

Date Posted,April 5, 2017

Diego Costa will not face any FA action after his bust-up with Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

Bad boy striker Costa was pictured kicking out at Kompany during Chelsea’s win over City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

But Mirror Sport understands referee Mike Dean saw the incident and did not deem it a serious red card offence anyway.

Therefore, it cannot be referred to the FA for potential retrospective action and that will be a huge relief for Chelsea.

Costa has cleaned up his act this season and his lash out in the 70th minute was largely out of keeping with his improved discipline on the pitch.
