Ivory Coast fullback Serge Aurier has promised to clean up his act, with the defender ready to listen to former national team captain Didier Drogba.

The 23-year-old's comments follow an interview conducted by RTL with Drogba, who warned the right-back that he has to think before he does anything in the public eye, with the former Chelsea striker conceding that he too 'lost it sometimes'.

Aurier continues to attract plenty of criticism, as he continues to face the consequences of not only his clash with a police officer, but also an incident where he directed homophobic slurs at his then Paris Saint-Germain head coach Laurent Blanc and teammates.

"When you have youngsters shouting your name and asking for autographs, you need to watch what you do," Drogba told RTL when quizzed on Aurier.

"When he does something that's not good, I tell him. But he is a good guy. He's loyal, and he wants to succeed.

"I'll stick up for him a bit because I lost it sometimes too. I don't think he's a bad guy."

Aurier replied Drogba's comments in the aftermath of the Elephants 0-0 draw with France in Lens on Tuesday, telling Canal Plus that he is ready to listen to the Montreal Impact forwards words of wisdom.

"Didier is a big brother," Aurier said.

"I still have him on the phone. There is no problem. He is in the best position to judge me. He gave me a lot of advice. I often went on vacation with him. I took this as advice … I take it well. I know he's a good man, and I know he loves me very much."
