Gabriel speaks about his clash with Chelsea striker Diego Costa

Gabriel and Costa

Arsenal defender Gabriel says his fight with Diego Costa happened in the “heat of the moment” and insists the issue is now “resolved”.

The Brazilian was involved in a spat with Chelsea striker Costa during Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, receiving a red card after kicking out at the frontman.

Gabriel received a subsequent £10,000 fine and one match ban, while Costa was slapped with a hefty three match ban for his actions leading up to the sending off.

“We were defending our respective teams and objectives. It was one of those situations that appears in the heat of the match. It’s another subject resolved,” Gabriel told Goal.
