    Default Uefa puts Chelsea and Didier Drogba in dock

    Carlo Ancelotti is expected to become the new manager of Chelsea next month and one of the first headaches that the Italian will have to deal with is the fallout from the club’s Champions League semi-final, second leg against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge.

    Didier Drogba and José Bosingwa were charged by Uefa yesterday for hounding and insulting Tom Henning Ovrebo, the Norwegian referee, and the governing body also started disciplinary proceedings against Chelsea for the behaviour of their players and their supporters who threw missiles from the stands. Michael Ballack has escaped punishment because his over-the-top reaction to Ovrebo’s refusal to award a late penalty took place during the 1-1 draw.

    Chelsea have been asked to respond to the charges by May 29 and Uefa will deal with the case on June 17, by which time Guus Hiddink, the interim manager, will be back in Russia. He still bears the scars of his side’s Champions League exit though.

    “I am human as well and I think Uefa, they will not say it, were very happy there was not an all-English final for the second consecutive time,” he said. “We should have scored more goals in the home game but, besides that, I feel the anger and injustice.”

    When asked about the qualities that his successor would need, Hiddink said: “The board and the owner will make a good choice. Ancelotti is mentioned a lot. I know him personally. He’s very good and he’s a big, great personality. That’s not to say that he will be the new manager — that’s up to other people to say.”

    Hiddink’s successor will inherit a team who are playing with confidence and desire, although the Dutchman said yesterday that his players were confused and distracted when he replaced Luiz Felipe Scolari in February. Speaking before his last Barclays Premier League game, away to Sunderland tomorrow, Hiddink said that his only regret was that he had not pitted his wits against Sir Alex Ferguson — the greatest British manager of modern times, Hiddink claimed. “That’s the regret — that we didn’t have the chance to play against them,” he said. “It would have been perfect.”

    A shambolic performance and 3-0 defeat against United in January convinced many influential voices at the club that Scolari was out of his depth and the Chelsea team to face Sunderland tomorrow will bear no relation to the disaffected squad that went through the motions at Old Trafford.That Sunderland are desperate for points and Chelsea have nothing to play for, especially with the FA Cup Final six days later, has not entered Hiddink’s mind. “We take every game seriously,” Hiddink said.

    Chelsea supporters tried their best to convince Hiddink to stay by singing his praises during and after last Sunday’s 2-0 home victory over Blackburn Rovers and Hiddink has revealed that Elizabeth, his long-term partner, has also been bending his ear.

    “My partner, when we came here, said, ‘Be careful with the stress. Lots of things can happen in England’,” Hiddink said. “But now she says, ‘I don’t want to go.’ Men think we are dominating the world but, in principle, women do.”

    Drogba is the biggest wank in European football.

    Hiddink has made some impact at Chelsea, Ancelotti is definitely a lesser replacement imo.

    But on topic, Drogba is indeed a prick but he had a fair point though, think if that was Celtic I would've had a worse reaction than Drogba. Don't like the guy but I understand where he's coming from.

    tbh If any Celtic player acted in that manner I would be very, very embarrassed. Fair enough it was a penalty or whatever, but the way they acted was just embarrassing for not only Drogba but the club itself.
