Drogba defends Anelka

JOHANNESBURG, June 21 – Ivory Coast skipper Didier Drogba rallied to support Chelsea teammate Nicolas Anelka on Sunday following the temperamental striker's expulsion from the French World Cup squad."He has been a teammate for two and a half years. Yes, I support him," said Drogba.

"I wish him good luck, it’s a difficult time for him. He is very strong mentally, he’s a competitor. I was surprised he was kicked out of the team."

Anelka was banished from the French squad following a foul-mouthed rant at coach Raymond Domenech as the 1998 champions slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Mexico on Friday, a loss which left them staring at World Cup elimination.

On Sunday, the French squad refused to train as a public expression of support for Anelka.
