    Chelsea To Appeal European Bans & Fine



    Chelsea have confirmed they will appeal against bans handed to Didier Drogba and Jose Bosingwa by Uefa after May's Champions League match with Barcelona.

    Drogba was given a six-match ban, with two games suspended for two years, for his row with referee Tom Henning Ovreb.

    Bosingwa called Ovrebo a "thief" and serves a four-match ban, one suspended.

    Chelsea now have six more days to formally lodge their appeal, and are also set to contest a £85,000 for improper conduct by players and fans.

    Before the bans were announced, Drogba had stated that he would accept any punishment given to him by Uefa.

    "My behaviour was not what Uefa and everyone wants to see in a football stadium," he said ahead of the governing body's verdict.

    The Blues were stunned by the severity of the suspensions following a bitter 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their semi-final, which saw them eliminated on the away goals rule.

    They felt referee Ovrebo should have awarded several penalties in the second half, and blamed him for their exit.

    Drogba swore into live TV cameras in front of millions of people, later apologising for his behaviour, while he and several other players surrounded the Norwegian official after the final whistle.

    Andres Iniesta's late away goal gave Barca a place in the final where they beat Manchester United to win the prestigious trophy.

    Hopefully they won't win and maybe add another match on each for contesting it.


    Chelsea should just keep quiet and accept this and be done with it.

    Lol there is no way they can win this appeal. Kinda surprised nothing happened to Ballack as well after the way he was chasing down the ref near the end of the match.

    I'd be curious to see what excuses Chelsea can come up with for one of their players acting like a child.


    ''What the fuck am I doing here?''

    Excuse: Well, Drogba is a tick as a plank, so can you let us deal with him instead of suspending him?

    Chelsea are lucky that Drogs didn't get a longer ban. No way can they win the appeal. Wonder what's next for Drogba.
