Stars unimpressed by diving antics of Chelsea ace Drogba

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!"
