FA set to hand Chelsea striker three-match ban for coin-throwing incident: Does he deserve it?

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is probably wishing he would have kept his goal celebration to himself. That little coin he threw at the Burnley fans is going to cost him dearly!

Drogba, who was responding to fans who had thrown coins at him, immediately apologised for his actions, admitting: “The big mistake I did was to throw it back so if someone was hurt I just want to aplogise for it.”

But, last Friday, the FA charged Drogba with violent conduct and, an hour before Monday night’s six o’clock deadline to respond, the striker admitted the charge. A Football Association regulatory commission meets on Tuesday to consider both video evidence and written submissions, and are expected to hand the Ivory Coast international a three-match suspension.

Well that was a quick hello and goodbye for the Ivory Coast man. He recently returned from injury and now he’s headed back to the bench! Even though he was provoked, Drogba should know better than to interact with the opposing fans during a match. If the match-ban is enforced, Drogba will miss the Arsenal, Newcastle and Bolton matches.

Are supporters fine with Drogba getting a three-match ban for his stupidity?
