image for Didier Drogba To Become A Ref
Could you do any better?

Didier Drogba, Chelsea's Ivory Coast striker, was last night so incensed by the "disgraceful performance" of Norwegian referee, Tom Henning Ovrebo, in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona, that he has decided to give up playing and pursue a career as a referee himself!

Drogba and the rest of the Chelsea team, and their fans, and former Watford supporter smarmy Tim Lovejoy on Radio 5 Live, were disgusted that the referee didn't award them at least two 'cast iron' penalties, and protested furiously and vociferously at the final whistle.

England captain John Terry, who should know better, and Drogba led the charge, remonstrating with the official resulting in stern criticism from the media, but the striker, having had a night to sleep on it, was apologetic this morning. He said:

"Referees have a difficult job, and in that type of atmosphere, mistakes can sometimes be made. Last night Mr Ovrebo told me that, if I could do a better job of refereeing games, I should try it myself. So I will!"

Guus Hiddink, the Blues' manager, watched the whole sorry incident from the touchline at the end of the game, and told the fourth official:

"Thank God I'm going at the end of the season!"
