Drogba: Cech’s injury was not an accident

Drogba told L’Equipe: “Don’t tell me tall stories, this was not an accident. He (Hunt) saw that he was going to collide with Petr and he didn’t try to avoid it.

“The worst came after that. When Petr was carried out of the ground, he (Hunt) was laughing

“I’m not paranoid but they hate us. Some people will use any means to beat us. We went there to play a match, but we soon realised that the guys facing us were out for the game of the season.

“From the first minute, he (Hunt) tried to intimidate us, to show that he didn’t fear us and that we’d better be ready for one hell of a challenge for 90 minutes.”
