Drogba handed Euro ban


Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been suspended from European competition for six matches following his antics against Barcelona.

The last two games in the ban will be deferred for a probationary period of two years, dependent on future behaviour.

Uefa have taken action against the Ivorian frontman following his furious reaction to the Blues' UEFA Champions League semi-final exit to Barcelona on 6th May.

Drogba confronted match referee Tom Henning Ovrebo at the end of the second leg of that contest, accusing the Norwegian official of bias towards the Spanish outfit.

He has subsequently been charged with breaching the principles of sportsmanship by insulting the referee and making offensive comments.

His ban will apply to the next four Uefa club competition events for which Chelsea are eligible.

Meanwhile, Drogba's Stamford Bridge team-mate Jose Bosingwa has also been suspended for four matches for offences in the same game- the last of which has been deferred for two years.

Chelsea have been fined 100,000 (85,000) for improper conduct of their players and the throwing of missiles by their supporters.

Both the club and the players involved have three days in which to lodge an appeal against Uefa's ruling

Bit harsh, getting banned for playing a massive game with the upmost heart, passion and determination... what signal does this send out to everyone else? Imho, there is too few players left in the game who are prepared to do a Romario (speak out when they firmly believe in something).

Can see your point but i still don't want a five year old hearing that out burst on the tele.
