Chelsea striker won’t face FA wrath for punch comments: Did they make the right choice?

Posted by

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has a little bit of his former coach, Jose Mourinho, in him. The similar trait they both share — besides both being whiners — is the affinity for opening their fat mouth and letting fly whatever is on their mind. Whilst his mouth has gotten him in hot water before, it looks like Drogba’s recent punching remarks in his new book won’t garner a response from the FA.

Didier Drogba will not face disciplinary action over comments in his autobiography saying he wished he had punched Nemanja Vidic in the Champions League final.

The Chelsea striker was sent off in the final in May for slapping the Manchester United defender and in his book said he now wishes he had punched Vidic.

The Football Association have studied the remark in the context of the book and have decided to take no action. (

Being as the comments were in a book, the non-ruling from the FA shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. If anything, the ruling body knows Drogba and his mouth and just decided to give him a free pass for sheer stupidity.
