Diego Costa has been banned for eigth games after telling the referee “I s*** on your whore mother” last Saturday.
The Spanish striker, 30, was given a straight red during Atletico’s 2-0 loss against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
Costa confronted referee Gil Manzano and launched a foul mouthed rant that was so vulgar he was given a red card.
It sparked mass protest from the Atletico team-mates and Costa had to be escorted off the pitch with his Spanish team-mate Gerard Pique ushering the shamed striker away.
On Wednesday The Spanish Football Federation discussed the incident and agreed on an eight game suspension – which will rule Costa out of the rest of the season.
Costa is also accused of preventing the referee from showing a yellow card to teammates Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez by holding his arm.
The ex-Chelsea man has been handed two four-game bans for the respective incidents.
Furthermore, he has received a £5,200 while the RFEF have also punished Atletico for the conduct of their player.
