Chelsea striker Drogba: Media created my diving rep

Chelsea ace Didier Drogba has rubbished claims he is a serial diver - and insists he's not modified his game since his arrival from France.

Drogba snapped: "Rather than looking to give me the benefit of the doubt, the media have decided to make the most of my inadequacies at (speaking) English to give me this reputation."

He also admits he has learnt to cope with being constantly criticised.

"At the start, it hurt me a lot and troubled me. But now, I couldn't care less," he added.

"It is a lot easier to create this image of Drogba not being very nice than to really look to find out what I am really like.

"I haven't changed since I came to England."
