Nkausu was part of the four-man Zambian defence in the Final and went into a myriad of physical battles in the box with Drogba during two hours of football on that famous night in Libreville, Gabon.
“You have to be extra careful with Drogba in the box because he goes down softly in the box,” warns the SuperSport United defender.
Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger have been amongst those that have famously labelled Drogba a diver.
“During the final he was down 24/7 and seems to have mastered the art of diving in search of getting penalties,” Nkausu adds.
“Drogba is big, but it is not even an effort for him to go down. There was one particular incident during the Final when he went down looking for a penalty, but the referee ignored it and didn’t even give him a penalty.
“I think he has taken this tendency that strikers have of always looking for a penalty when they get into the box a bit too far.
“I fail to understand how such a big strong guy like Drogba can go down so easily. With his profile in football referees always give him attention.
“I don’t like it when strikers dive to get unfair penalties because that is something that also leads to us defenders getting unnecessary cards from referees who would have fallen for these tricks,” says Nkausu.
