Ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa allegedly investigated in relation to betting scandal

Posted by

Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa is embroiled in a police investigation into alleged betting wrongdoing, as is reported by The Sun.

Costa is one of the most recognisable characters to have competed in the Premier League in recent seasons, with his combative and often aggressive style of play making him stand out from the crowd.

The striker is currently playing his football back in his native Brazil with Atletico Mineiro, who have confirmed that one of their players is under investigation for their alleged misconduct in a rather brief statement that claimed the allegations “do not concern the club.”

As is mentioned in the report by The Sun, Costa has not been officially named, but local reports have suggested that his house was searched by police in relation to an investigation into malpractice by ESPORTENET betting site.

Details are scarce at this point in time, but you imagine that were there to be any concrete evidence that there is wrongdoing on Costa’s part, we will be hearing more about it in due course.
