Today Uefa announced that the bans handed to Didier Drogba & Jose Bosingwa after the Barcelona 2nd leg on 6th may have been cut by a game each based on each players appeals over the bans handed to them by UEFA after the game.

The statement reads:

"The UEFA Appeals Body has announced its verdicts, following appeals lodged by Chelsea FC striker Didier Drogba and defender José Bosingwa against sanctions imposed by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body last month, in the wake of incidents occurring at the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg between Chelsea and FC Barcelona in London on 6 May.

Under the UEFA Appeals Body's verdicts, Drogba will be suspended for five UEFA club competition matches – the last two of which will be deferred for a probationary period of three years – and has been fined €15,000. Bosingwa will be suspended for three UEFA club competition matches, the last of which is deferred for a probationary period of three years, and fined €10,000.

Drogba and Bosingwa faced charges of being in breach of the principles of sportsmanship by insulting the referee by making offensive comments. Drogba's suspension applies to the next three UEFA club competition matches for which the player would be eligible, while Bosingwa's ban applies to the next two UEFA club competition games for which the player would be eligible.

The €100,000 fine imposed against Chelsea by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body remains confirmed (as the club withdrew their appeal), for the improper conduct of their players and the throwing of missiles by their supporters at the match against Barcelona, which ended in a 1-1 draw".

We all know what happened and we all felt the same injustice. At least we have managed to get something out of the scandal that occured that night!!
