Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been handed a three-match suspension for violent conduct following the coin-throwing incident against Burnley.

The Ivorian threw a coin back at the visiting fans during his side's Carling Cup defeat at Stamford Bridge last week.

The immediately effective ban will rule Drogba out of Chelsea's next three Premier League matches against Newcastle, Arsenal and Bolton.

A short statement said: "At a Regulatory Commission, Chelsea forward Didier Drogba was given a three-match suspension.

"Drogba admitted a charge of violent conduct. The charge related to Drogba throwing a missile into the away section of the crowd after scoring during the League Cup match against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 12 November.

"Drogba will serve the suspension with immediate effect."

The 30-year-old had already apologized for his conduct after the match against the Clarets and admitted the charge on Monday.
