Chelsea hero has commentators in stiches after on-field mis-hap

Chelsea fans love Demba Ba. Although the Senegalese striker didn’t quite scale the heights some hoped he would when he made the move from Newcastle to the west end of London, he did score that goal against Liverpool after Steven Gerrard’s slip, and will also be remembered for a dramatic late winner at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

In case you haven’t been following the travels of the 30-year-old since his days at Chelsea, Ba is now one of many high profile names in the Chinese Super League, where he plays for Shanghai Shenhua… and it seems he’s attracting attention from referees.

Of course it was entirely accidental, but we’re sure Ba would have been a little frustrated to have the official prevent him from winning the sort of aerial ball he’s gobbled up through his career.

At least the commentators liked it, with the men in the box finding the whole incident highly amusing!
