Division over Norwegian whistleblower's performance

5:43 pm on 8 May 2009

The Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will find out tomorrow if he's to face disciplinary action from European football's governing body UEFA for confronting the Norwegian referee after the Champions' league semi-final against Barcelona.

The Chelsea players were incensed that Tom Henning Ovrebo turned down four strong penalty appeals.

Drogba's since apologised, saying he over-reacted.

But the former Manchester City striker Uwe Rosler, who's now in charge at the Norwegian club Viking Stavanger says Ovrebo's performance has divided his nation.
