Uefa have reduced Chelsea’s Didier Drogba’s European ban from four matches to three.
The Ivorian striker was given the ban in the wake of his tirade at the match officials following the Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final exit to Barcelona last season.
He has, however, now seen his punishment reduced after pleading his case to a Uefa appeals panel on Wednesday.
The hearing ut the initial ban but has kept a suspended two game suspension in place.
Drogba’s Chelsea team-mate Jose Bosingwa was handed a three-match ban for making offensive comments about Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo, but will now miss only two games.
