Didier Drogba Swears At Camera Following Champions League Thriller
Total Pro Sports – There wasn’t much that yesterday’s UEFA Champions League match between Barcelona and Chelsea didn’t provide. A late goal, a bit of controversy, some yelling at the ref, and, of course, a bit of unedited swearing. This was defiantly no “F%*king Disgrace.”
After drawing even at 0-0 in the first leg match at Barcelona, everything was on the line going back to Chelsea. The Blues came out hard and took the lead nine minutes in with Essien’s beautiful strike. The 1-0 score held up all the way until three minutes into second half injury time, when Barcelona’s Andrés Iniesta scored to tie the game at 1-1 and gave his team the edge on away goals.
There was still a couple minutes left in injury time when Michael Ballack had his shot blocked in the box by what he felt was the hand of a Barcelona player. That’s when things got even even crazier. Ballack proceeded to chase referee Tom Ovrebro down the field and the entire team let him have it. Chelsea striker Didier Drogba was so pissed that he swore at the cameras during the live broadcast, saying “Its a f*cking disgrace”. I bet a lot of people were thinking that.
Here’s the video of Drogba swearing.
Here’s a little remake of Drogba and Ballack with a friendly twist.
