Chelsea striker Drogba surprised being hooked in Man City defeat

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits being hooked during defeat at Manchester City surprised him.

Drogba was substituted in the 75th minute of Chelsea's 1-0 defeat at City last Saturday, and admits he was surprised to make an early exit.

However, the striking ace insists he respects manager Carlo Ancelotti's decision.

"I was surprised because I didn't expect that at that moment of the game," he said.

"But the managers always decide and I think he had some reasons and I understand them."
