Didier Drogba was sent off in the Champions League final in May, three minutes from the end of extra time. Any sensible observer would agree that his – quite ridiculous – slap on Vidic deserved a dismissal but he feels wronged.

‘I have seen the match on video and I believe I should not have been sent off with three minutes to go.

‘If I had punched him, I would have understood. Now I wish I had.’


Let’s face it, Didier: you’re either a A) sneaky little scumbag who wanted to show what a big guy he is but did not want to risk being sent off or B) you were simply afraid to hit Vidic which we all understand: neither of us would like to do it.

But really, acting like you were such a tough guy? We all know that you’re a diving little primadonna. At least Ronaldo does not go around claiming he should have hit someone – and doesn’t make himself look a stupid little girl by slapping someone in the face then talking out of his arse.

The FA are apparently looking into it but it does not warrant a punishment. It is just not serious enough. It’s like punishing a specky 10-year-old kid who believes he’s Rambo and goes around shooting everyone with a toy gun.
