Wayne Rooney Tells Didier Drogba To Cut Out Play-Acting – Hypocrite?

By on April 19, 2012

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney joined in the calls for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to stop the play-acting and stay on his feet.

Drogba was in action on Wednesday night for the Blues during a stunning 1-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi final. The Ivorian showed the good side of his game by netting the vital winner just before half time, and the powerful forward was a threat on the rare occasion Chelsea put an attack together.

However, his performance was marred by a series of over-the-top falls and amateur dramatics which drew criticism from all corners of the footballing world, including United striker Wayne Rooney.

During the game, Rooney took to his official Twitter account to say “Drogba. Your a good player but pls get up.”

Rooney then drew criticism himself for being a hypocrite, after some Twitter followers replied reminding Rooney that his Man Utd team-mate Ashley Young could also do with staying on his feet at times.

What do you think, is Rooney right for telling Drogba to stay on his feet? Or has he no place to hand out advice given the fact his own team mates are under scrutiny for diving? Get involved in the comments section….

    Drogba did what players do and I have to applaud him for it. On another day Barca would have not minded one bit if one of their own players had won more free kicks and broken up play more than anyone else on the pitch. Rooney, meh, who cares. He has, and will again, dived when his team needed it. It is part of the modern game and anyone who doesn’t take advantage is at a disadvantage. Sad, in fact very sad for football, but true.

    Wow!its nice to hear Ronnie say that. He’s right though but that is part of the plan to stop Barcelona. Ask him if falling the way Drog did against them to earn a victory is what’s needed to beat Barcelona last season. Wouldn’t he had fallen more? Lol.

    Drogba did more in that match than Rooney ever has done against Barcelona! They didn’t know what to do with Didier Drogba! He outshone Busquest in Diving and breaking up play, dominated masher’red card’rano and that geezer Puyol! And even gave messi a hard time! Brilliant play from Didier Drogba! One shot on target one goal, the whole Barcelona team had 6 shots on target and had nothing to show for it! Drogba showed that in the end whether possession is 0-101 or 70-30 or 50-50, GOALS are what matter, those other stupid stats are for graphics specialists to have a chance to show off their little tricks! DROGBAAAAA!

    Simply tell this BARE head to keep quiet and focused on his team. He is invariable telling the whole world that he is not happy about our progress in champions league because they have been booted out like a pack of Beans. What a shame on ROONEY OR RONDO for making such comment. Everybody knows that MAN U have alot of favour when it comes to Premier league, come to think of it, himself is a great diver, ASHLEY YOUNG, WELBECK OR WELLBACK anyone, infact, all of them are divers so you guys should better resign from football and give swimming a trier.
