Liverpool boss Benitez won't back away from Drogba criticism

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has refused to back away from criticism of how easily Chelsea striker Didier Drogba goes down under challenge.

Ahead of tonight's Champions League semifinal second-leg, Benitez said: "I was clear, after watching a lot of games I believe everyone would have the same idea. Everybody can see it in the games.

"Drogba is a fantastic player, that is clear, but he falls down too easily.

"I have said things about Drogba, about how easy it is for him to fall down. Everybody can see it every game, it is very clear.

"I hope the Italian referee, who has experience in Europe, will know what is going on and will be strong."
