Drogba fined for refusing to play



Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, has been fined for refusing to play for Montreal Impact last weekend.

Drogba, 38, did not play against Toronto, with coach Mauro Biello saying after the game that the forward “didn’t accept a place on the bench”.

Major League Soccer have fined Drogba an unspecified amount “for his failure to appear”.

In a separate ruling, New York City defender Diego Martinez was fined for swearing at a ballboy.

Martinez was accused of directing a “homophobic slur” at a DC United ballboy last week but the league said that an investigation had found no evidence of that, only of using an obscenity.
