A video doing the rounds showing Drogba mocking their Champions League draw with Benfica has infuriated the Portuguese club.
"Who knows what he was thinking?" said Jesus.
"Maybe he was making a joke, who knows? But Portuguese clubs (Benfica and Sporting) have eliminated Manchester United and Manchester City, so that would be an indication of the strength of Portuguese football.
"The only response we'll give Drogba is on the field when we will prove to be better than him."
