Drogba set for FA action
21 Mar 2007 - 08:33:05
A report suggests that Chelsea striker Didier Drogba could face action from the Football Association for his part in the fracas that marred his side's FA Cup sixth round replay success at Tottenham.
The Daily Mirror reports that the FA is due to look at television pictures of the incident that appear to show the Ivory Coast international aiming a kick at a pitch invader.
Spurs stewards were holding down the fan at the time after he had run on to the pitch at the final whistle and attempted to punch Drogba's Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard.
The newspaper says that the FA have requested the TV pictures after Spurs supporters "besieged phone-ins to complain about the Chelsea players' conduct".
The pitch invader has been handed a life ban from White Hart Lane and will appear at Haringey Magistrates after being charged with encroaching onto the pitch.
