Chelsea legend Drogba fined for refusing to play for Montreal Impact

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been fined for refusing to play for Montreal Impact last weekend.

Drogba, 38, did not play against Toronto, with coach Mauro Biello saying after the game that the forward "didn't accept a place on the bench".

Major League Soccer have fined Drogba an unspecified amount "for his failure to appear".

Drogba, who left Chelsea in July 2015, has been used as a substitute in two of the Impact's previous four games.
