Chelsea striker Drogba: I did not deserve sending off

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists he did not deserve his red card suffered in last night's Champions League elimination by Inter Milan. Drogba was shown a red card for a foul on Thiago Motta in the closing stages to complete a miserable night for Carlo Ancelotti's men.

He thinks the decision was harsh, but concedes it was not a significant incident as Chelsea's European dreams were shattered for another season.

"It is difficult to take because, yes I stepped on his calf, but I don't think I deserved this red card," said Drogba.

"But it is something that happened in the game. The most important thing is that we are out of the competition."
