Chelsea's Drogba and Bosingwa banned from CL group games

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and Jose Bosingwa have been suspended by UEFA for the Champions League group stages. This follows their improper conduct during Chelsea's semi-final defeat by Barcelona.

Chelsea have been fined £85,000 for the inappropriate behaviour from their staff and fans - who proceeded to throw projectiles at their opposing support during the incident.

Drogba's punishment will see him miss out on four matches, while Jose Bosingwa will sit out three.

The pair are also said to be on a probationary period of two years, sanctioned by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body.

A spokesman for Chelsea said: "We are considering our response."
