UEFA have revealed that Chelsea striker Didier Drogba might have to wait weeks for a disciplinary decision following his ill-tempered outburst during the club’s Champions League tie against Barcelona.
Chelsea are no longer involved in European competition this season and therefore there is no urgency for a ruling, a UEFA spokesman explained.
“This can wait for a while,” he tol AFP
The next plenary meeting of the control body is scheduled for July 23.
UEFA said in a statement last week that it was examining both the referee’s and the delegate’s reports and was gathering additional evidence.
Drogba faces a lengthy ban following his confrontation with Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovreba after Barcelona’s injury time goal sent the London outfit crashing out of the Champions League semi-final last Wednesday.
