Drogba understands Chelsea fans unhappy with Benitez

Didier Drogba can understand Chelsea fans being unhappy with manager Rafa Benitez.

After Benitez accused Drogba of being a 'diver' before the Champions League semi-final second leg in 2008, the Chelsea striker slid to his knees and celebrated his winner in front of the Liverpool manager.

He told the Daily Mail: "I went to one game at Stamford Bridge and the fans were not so happy with him and it must be tough to manage in these conditions.

"After the history he had with the club, I can understand the fans a little bit."
