Though Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has largely shed his reputation as a diver over the last few years, old habits returned during Wednesday night's Champions League round of 16 second leg match against Napoli.
Drogba, who scored the first goal in Chelsea's 4-1 extra-time win that allowed them to advance to the quarter finals on a 5-4 aggregate score, feigned getting hit in the face by Salvatore Aronica and fell to the ground clutching his face. Then, in a bit reminiscent of Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets' infamous peek-a-boo routine against Inter two years ago, Drogba opened his eyes to take a sneaky glance to see if the ref was watching.
Here's Busquets and Drogba in a side-by-side comparison...
Since Busquets didn't raise £250,000 to build hospitals in Africa the week he did his dive-and-peek like Drogba did, so I think his is still worse.
