LOS ANGELES: Former Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba leapt to the defense of suspended compatriot Serge Aurier on Wednesday, claiming the Paris Saint-Germain defender had been treated unfairly over his ban for abusing coach Laurent Blanc. In a lengthy post on Twitter, the Montreal Impact striker complained that Aurier’s treatment for directing homophobic abuse against Blanc amounted to double standards. Aurier was suspended after being caught on the social media video site Periscope verbally abusing PSG boss Blanc. “I don’t often comment on these things but the way my little brother @serge_aurier has been treated over the past few days has really upset me so I feel the need to say something,” Drogba said.
