Chelsea's Drogba prepared to take UEFA ban on chin

Chelsea star Didier Drogba says he's prepared to take any punishment he receives from UEFA on the chin.

The charismatic Ivorian is sweating on UEFA's inquiry into his foul-mouthed rant at ref Tom Henning Ovrebo after Chelsea's Champions League exit against Barcelona.

Their verdict is due later this month. But Drogba insisted: "It's not easy but whatever decision they take I will accept it because my behaviour was not what UEFA and what everyone wants to see in a football stadium.

"I will do my suspension and, after that, I will come back stronger."
