Gareth Barry Has Had His Say On The Diego Costa Biting Allegations

Gareth Barry Has Had His Say On The Diego Costa Biting Allegations
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Everton's Gareth Barry (Gaz Baz to his friends) has confirmed that Diego Costa did not bite him during yesterday's FA cup quarter-final at Goodison Park.

Costa was sent off for the first time in Chelsea career during the game, picking up a second yellow card for this clash with Barry, in which he appeared to bite Barry:

Barry has now come out to say that it was not a bite. Barry told the Fanzai app the following:

Seen a lot of talk about the incident involving me and Diego Costa in the game last night.

For the record Diego did not bite me.

On behalf of all the media, we would like to sincerely thank Barry for confirming that Costa did not bite him. We just cannot face another news cycle beginning with 'Was it a deliberate bite' ending in a debate comparing a bite to other instances of foul play following a suspension. As absurd as this would have sounded three years ago, but Luis Suarez has given us bite fatigue.

Cheers, Gareth.
