Uefa report points finger at Drogba and Chelsea supporters

Didier Drogba and Chelsea fans are the guilty parties in the official UEFA delegate's report of the Champions League clash, reports The Mirror. Latvian Janis Mezeckis saw two bottles thrown onto the pitch, and his assessment of Drogba's behaviour is also likely to lead to a massive ban for the player.

Mirror Sport claims that match delegate Mezeckis has highlighted Drogba and the Chelsea fans for specific action.

Mezeckis compiled his report on the basis of the scenes he witnessed after the final whistle and conversations with Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo and his assistants.

Mezeckis said: "The first thing I mentioned in my report was the behaviour of Drogba. What he did after the game, to the referee and one of the assistants, was not correct.

"I also wrote about the two missiles I saw thrown on to the pitch. I thought they were bottles. This is not acceptable."

The controversial performance of the officials was not included in the report.

Mezeckis added: "It is not my job to talk about the referee or evaluate his performance. My job is simply to write about the behaviour I witnessed."
