Barca’s Atlético’s judge will be questioned


The Disciplinary Committee of the Royal Spanish Federation has asked Judge Hill Mansano to describe the actions and words of Diego Kosta during the Saturday meeting between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid (2: 0). The Brazilian with a Spanish passport was expelled in the 28th minute after offensive words to the arbiter.

In the judging report after the match, the referee wrote the exact words in his address. The arbitrator has 24 hours to explain the player’s behavior to help the Disciplinary Commission determine the player’s sanction. Diego Kosta may be penalized for eight games if his behavior is considered gross.
