Drogba hit with two-match ban

2010-03-30 13:28

London - Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been handed a two-game European suspension after being sent off in the Champions League loss to Inter Milan this month.

UEFA said on Tuesday it has also extended Drogba's period of probation by two years until July 2013.

He was given an initial two-year probation after his aggressive behaviour toward the referee last season when Chelsea were eliminated by Barcelona in the Champion League semi-finals.

Drogba will miss the first two matches of European club competition for which he is eligible next season.

He has three days to appeal the ban.

    Another slap on the wrists for this retard! He is a sore loser and i can guarantee that if Utd beat the Blues, he will perform and jump around like a total idiot!

  • AL - 2010-03-30 14:23

    What a disgrace to world football. He could have been one of the best but acts like a whiny little biatch when he doesn`t get his way. Please someone take him out of the EPL.

    Although a Drogba Fan, I have to agree - he nowadays acts like a prima donna. He needs many chances to score, before he actually does and if he doesn't score, he turns to acting or rioting!

    Drogba is scum and his constant ill-tempered and petulant behaviour has been an embarassment to football. He should have been banned for life ages ago.

  • WTF - 2010-03-30 15:02

    He also did not deserve the African player of the year award! Eto definately deserved it for winning trophies with Barca last season! He is a disgrace to African football as all African players will be perceived as moaners / cheats / whiners!

    Too emotional to be considered a true great of English Football or any football for that matter. Grom up you pansy you in your 30's and why can't you age gracefully like Giggs. The old men of Chelsea i.e Ballack n Drogba and to a lesser degree Terry can learn something from Giggs or better still Frank Lampard what a professional. Drogba's a moron and over rated actually. Just watch United play Bayern tonight and sulk you lil girl

    To all Drogba haters it's understandable.............surely you wished he was banned for next Saturday game against Man U (the Cheaterz).....I can't wait for the 3rd of April, the fact is stupid referees are always chosen to referee our games if U fergietes where honest U will acknowledge our unfair treatment by reefers in the Barcelona 2009 game & if u watched objectively the Inter game U would have seen the real disgrace was Thiago Mota who came into Drogba & dived & was never pushed @ all.......unlike your overated Rooney who is the worst bad tempered bugger in the English football, let the games begin..................see U'all after we win the Premiership & U wish U had been knocked earlier in the champions league. u MUST ASK YOURSELVES WHO HAS MORE RED CARDS ROONEY VS DROGBA @ Al & Mandi your children will never score as many goal as De Drog jst eat a humble pie

    This guy is truly great, really a goal scoring machine nand is definately doing what he is supposed to do and what he was bron to do. Unforunately, he will never be considered a great role model as opposed to a good role model. Its almost protocol for this guy to get sent off everytime the exit the champions league and he needs to be disciplined not only by the powers that be, but by his players and his coach, and even friends and family. The sad part is that i have met the guy, even took a photo with him standing next to his sl65 amg (white) of a car, and he is genuinely a good guy. Why he has to exhibit this type of sportsmanship when things arent going his way baffles me. Now, seeing as i am a united fan, i have to point out the fact that Rooney once behaved like this too, and he has grown and matured out of it, (not fully i have to admit) but it is a part of his game he needs to work on. Chelsea has always been a gentlemans club and boasts top 4 status, but Drogba seems to give this club a bad name on the big stage. Now if any of you Chelsea supporters are going to back his behaviour its going to make me think twice about you too, because if Drogba was your son, and you had to watch him behave like this at school level, moral standing should make you dissapointed in the way he acted and im sure that 95% of you would sit him down for a good talking to after. Ronaldo was one of my favourite players at United, but sometimes i even shook my head at his behaviour, and even said that he should look at Giggs or Lampard or Fabregas for guidence. have you ever seen the likes of Raul behaving like this? God forbid, even messi? not in a million years, now what gives him the right to behave like a goon on the pitch? Nothing comes to mind, and his behaviour is reminds me of Adebayor when he ran 90% of the pitch length to act like amonkey in front of his old supporters. Its just not right.

  • Eto fan - 2010-03-30 19:36

    It seems very time he loses againts Eto, he lose his temper

  • AL @ F U all - 2010-04-01 14:13

    If my kids ever acted like Drogba they would get such a flat klap over the head!! You sound like a typical Roman army supporter who actually watches more UTD games than your own team - get a life. BTW - `overrated` Rooney is the top goal scorer moron.
