Didier Drogba admits he has lost respect for Rafael Benitez following the Liverpool manager´s attack on the theatrics of the Chelsea striker.

Benitez fanned the flames ahead of Wednesday´s Champions League semi-final second leg between the two teams by claiming Drogba goes down too easily, while also revealing he has compiled a four-year dossier of the striker´s alleged ´diving´ antics.

"Perhaps he is looking for something to destabilise us before the match," Drogba told French daily L´Equipe. "Benitez was a manager I respected a lot. Until now, I found him not only very competent but also classy. But he has really disappointed me here."
