Watch Wolves bad-boy Diego Costa sent off for HEADBUTT on Brentford’s Ben Mee in 97th minute | The Sun

FOOTBALL bad-boy Diego Costa received a straight red card after HEADBUTTING Brentford star Ben Mee.

And unbelievably, it was ex-Chelsea star Costa’s first-ever red card in the Premier League.

The Brazil-born Spaniard, 34, joined Wolves on a free transfer last month after leaving Atletico Mineiro.

Costa is yet to score for his new club.

The aggressive striker hoped to rectify the situation today against Brentford.

The veteran had previously gone 89 league games without a red card at former side Chelsea.
