Didier Drogba told to change behaviour by son

Saturday, November 7, 2009

Didier Drogba has revealed that his recent attitude adjustment came after his son told him his behaviour after Chelsea's Champions League exit to Barcelona was wrong.

The Ivory Coast megastar launched his infamous wild-eyed rant at referee Tom Henning Øvrebø at the end of last season's semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, which ended 1-1 and saw Barcelona through to the final on away goals.

"My son was watching with his friends from school and I was embarrassed by my behaviour," Drogba told The Times.

"The good thing was that Isaac came to me and said, ‘It’s not right what you did, Dad, you should have had more penalties, but it’s not right to do that to referees.’

"I told him never to do what I did. He’s 8 and plays for Chelsea Under-9s, but is very different to me. He’s really calm."

He added: "It was really difficult after the Barcelona game because I made a mistake, but was frustrated that people didn’t understand why I reacted.

"I apologised and everything, but I also wanted to show I’m not the person people think I am. I’m not a bad guy, I just want to win and sometimes I react.

"The passion drives me. It’s a part of my behaviour I need to improve, but people are human beings."
