Chelsea’s distraction tactics worked a dream on Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba this evening, as exemplified by this free-kick.

There had been some suggestions that the best way to keep the former Blues star quiet would be to overpower him with kindness and hope emotions got the better of him. And that plan seemed to work quite well.

Handed a free-kick in a dangerous position in the first-half of tonight’s Champions League clash, Drogba forgot to aim for the goal and instead picked out a large ‘Drogba Legend’ banner in the upper tier of Stamford Bridge.
