Lampard hopes Chelsea pal Drogba avoids ban

Frank Lampard hopes Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba isn't banned over his coin throwing incident.

Frank Lampard hopes Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba isn't banned over his coin throwing incident.

Lampard said: “There are two sides to it. Didier’s come out and there’s been a reaction — a human reaction, I have to say — which Jamie Carragher also made once.

“Didier’s come out straight away and said he has made a mistake. People also have got to stop throwing things on the pitch.

“I was around Didier at the time and I don’t know how many coins there were.

“We’ve seen refs get hit, too, so I think people must take responsibility as a group. Didier has to take responsibility as an individual. I hope he doesn’t get suspended but it’s up to the FA.”
