Roberto Di Matteo has insisted there was no need to "have a word" with Didier Drogba about his antics in Chelsea's Champions League win over Barcelona.

Caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo revealed Drogba picked up a genuine injury in Wednesday night's semi-final first leg that has left him in a race against time to be fit for Tuesday's return match. Drogba was hailed and castigated for a performance that saw him score the winner but also roll around theatrically several times.

Asked if he would have a conversation about the issue with Drogba, Di Matteo said: "No, because I don't see any reason why I should have a conversation like that. Our players, I think, are fair players. Everybody has his own style but I think we are a fair team."
