Didier Drogba has jumped to the defence of suspended Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier. Aurier was banned from the PSG squad ...
Aurier was banned from the PSG squad for their Champions League last-16 clash with Chelsea on Tuesday after he appeared to make homophobic remarks about head coach Laurent Blanc and team-mate ZlatanIbrahimovic in a video posted on social media.
Blanc described the 22-year-old’s conduct as “pathetic” and warned of further punishment from the club, despite the full-back apologising for the incident, while figures in French football — including Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas and Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier — have slammed the player’s conduct.
Yet Drogba, who lifted the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast alongside Aurier last year, says there should be less finger-pointing and more done to educate young players about the dangers of social media.
