Chelsea ace Didier Drogba drew the ire of football's best with his diving antics against Barcelona.

Usually it's Barca's stars who are frustrating fans with their play-acting, but Wednesday night it was Drogba. Despite Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney admiring the Ivorian's quality on the ball, the amateur dramatics on show also merited a mention.

He wrote: "Drogba. Your a good player but pls get up."

Rooney's Tweet was echoed by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, who wrote: "Has drogba got the right footwear on... Seems to be slipping a lot."

Ajax defender Gregory van der Wiel added: "Hahaha Drogba is so funny, all the time on the ground!"

But Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas had a theory about why the constant stoppages were taking place.

He chirped: "People on here killing off Drogba for diving around but I can guarantee the midfielders and defends are happy for the rest!"
